Yesterday, authorities received a call about a foul stench coming from a restaurant. But it wasn’t just rotten food or a rat infestation.
After Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan got the call, police and firemen rushed to the scene at 7:33am to find the restaurant closed up with the shutters down.
The firemen took a chainsaw to the shutters and got into the lot to find a decomposing corpse of a naked woman, covered by a sheet.
The body was suspected to have been there since the woman’s last shift on 25th September, according to witnesses.
Body decomposition occurs 3-5 days after death, when the body starts to bloat and various liquids leak from the mouth and nose, causing a repugnant smell.
The deceased 50-year-old Indonesian woman’s body has been transported to Serdang Hospital for post-mortem and the police are currently investigating the motive behind her murder.
“We are investigating the matter under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder,” said Zaid Hassan.
The location of the restaurant is in Bandar Rinching, Semenyih and authorities urge those with information to come forward by contacting investigating officer Asst Supt Mohd Faizal at 011-33319871 or any nearest police station.
