KUALA LUMPUR: A couple found dead in a silver Mercedes Benz at Taman Metropolitan Batu in Kampung Batu, Sentul, are not husband and wife as initially suspected.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng clarified that the wife and son of the man have come forward to claim his body.
“So far, we know that the man is from Jinjang and the woman is from Teluk Intan, Perak.
“However, we are still unsure how they knew each other,” he said during a press conference at the city police headquarters here yesterday.
Both the deceased were aged 58.
The security guard at the park, Faris Izham Kamaruddin, 21, said he had spotted the couple arriving at around noon on Tuesday.
Five hours later, a few joggers came shouting for help, and when Fariz Izham went to the scene, he found the couple sprawled motionless inside the vehicle which was filled with black smoke.
SAC Gan said that initial investigations showed no sign of foul play.
“The case has been classified as sudden death, but we are not ruling out suicide.”
