Unpleasant smells from a restaurant are always a bad thing. Regretfully, this unpleasant smell was an indicator of something worse than spoilt food.
Police discovered the body of a 50-year-old Indonesian woman yesterday morning (28th September). The body was located in a closed restaurant in Bandar Rinching, Semenyih, leading them to suspect foul play.
According to Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan, they had received a call about a stench coming from the restaurant. The police and firemen arrived on the scene at 7.33am and discovered the restaurant was locked up tight. The firemen had to use a chainsaw to get into the restaurant.
Upon entry, they were surprised to discover a woman’s body in the restaurant. She was naked, covered only by a sheet. “According to witnesses, the woman was last seen working in the restaurant on 25th September,” Mohd Zaid said. As the body had already started to decompose and smell, it is suspected her death took place roughly 3 days ago.
“The victim’s body has been sent to Serdang Hospital for post-mortem,” Mohd Zaid added. Police are still looking into the motive behind her suspected murder. Currently, the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
Police are seeking for those with information on the crime to contact the investigating officer Asst Supt Mohd Faizal at 011-33319871 or head to the nearest police station.
