KUANTAN, Oct 28 -- The body of a man, believed to have been a suspect in a home invasion, was found in a drain in Taman Inderapura here yesterday.
Kuantan district police chief ACP Mohamad Noor Yusof Ali said the victim was found at about 11.10pm, clad only in blue jeans and a pair of shoes.
He said a woman has claimed that the victim, based on a mark on his right arm, was her 47-year-old former husband who lived in Jalan Gambang here.
“There are no signs of injury or altercation from initial checks on the body, but the owner of a house in the residential area claimed that there had been a break-in attempt on Friday.
“We have not ruled out the possibility that the deceased was involved in the break-in, and tried to hide in the drain,” he told reporters here today.
Mohamad Noor said the body was sent to the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital here for a post mortem, and so far the case has been classified as sudden death.
