“I’m sorry, mum. I’m really sorry .. I seek your forgiveness and if time permits, I will come home for a sleepover.” Those were the heartbreaking last words Noor Amila Edrus Norsham uttered to his mother, Siti Nursharmila Tengku Hanafiah, during the last Hari Raya.
The 5-year-old kid was reported missing after he was last seen near a surau at the Jinjang Utara longhouse last Thursday (11th August). His body was found decapitated at the hill slope at Kampung Kemensah near Zoo Negara yesterday (Thursday, 18th August).
According to Astro Awani, Edrus and his younger sibling live with his father and stepmother in Jinjang Utara. Edrus’ case was initially reported as a missing person’s case but is now being probed under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, said Sentul police chief ACP R. Munusamy.
The police has also arrested a 26-year-old man, believed to be from Myanmar with permanent residence status and had close ties with the victim’s family. The suspect allegedly kidnapped Edrus in hopes that the ransom from the abduction will help settle his previous debt.
The father has 9 children from his 4 wives. It is learnt that Edrus was the son of his father’s 4th wife and has been living with the man’s 2nd wife.
Investigation is underway and it is believed that the murder case only involves 1 individual.
