SUBANG JAYA: The police are 75% sure that the boy found in Port Klang is William Yau, said Subang Jaya OCPD Assistant Commissioner Yahaya Ramli.
ACP Yahaya said the parents were present during the post mortem and identified the shorts and underpants on the body found as William's.
He said the parents also identified scars on the back of the head and forehead as consistent with scars William had.
"Post mortem results could not reveal the cause of death as the body was too badly decomposed.
"We have established that the boy has been dead for about a week based on the level of decomposition," he told reporters at the Subang Jaya police headquarters Friday.
ACP Yahaya said there is no sign of external injury except for a few bite marks.
"We believe the body was bitten by animals when it was floating in the river," he said.
"We cannot be 100% sure until DNA results come in. We expect the DNA results to be in by Monday," he said.
"We have a theory that the body floated about 30km down the Klang river from Bukit Lanchong before it got stuck on a boat near the Kampung Sungai Sireh jetty.
"We will be sending a team there to investigate further," he said.
He added that the police will call upon William's older brother for further statements.
"We find his statements have been consistent," he said.
ACP Yahaya said the police did not rule out foul play, but added that William's parents are not suspects.
