PETALING JAYA: The result of the full post-mortem on William Yau Zhen Zhong is out. But the police have little idea as to how he died. The post-mortem has proven inconclusive.
Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said the report on Monday had failed to provide fresh leads on the six-year-old's death.
Police will close investigations on Friday and propose to the Deputy Public Prosecutor that an inquest be held.
“The past three weeks have not yielded any new clues. As such, an inquest is the most suitable next step,” he said.
William was found dead in Sungai Klang, Port Klang, on Jan 24 after he went missing on Jan 16. His parents had left him in the car with his two siblings and found him missing when they returned.
ACP Yahaya said police had not identified any suspect in the case.
“There are no visible signs of abuse and William's parents are not suspects. More than 30 statements have been recorded but there is no evidence to suggest foul play,” he said.
He added that police would comb through the areas where William went missing and where his body was discovered again.
“We are giving it one final push this week to look for new clues that might help us solve the case,” he said, adding that William could have died after an accident.
