SITIAWAN: The living room of a couple’s rented home in Kampung Cina here was splattered with blood when policemen stormed into the house after receiving a call about people fighting there.
M. Muniandy (pic), 30, and his wife, A. Kaliamah (pic), 37, were found dead with slash wounds all over their bodies in the room while their 30-month-old visually-impaired daughter was fast asleep in the bedroom.
Nothing was missing or stolen from the house, Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Jaafar Baba said.
He said the couple’s landlord had called the police after being told by neighbours there were people fighting at the house at about 1.30am yesterday.
“The living room was covered in blood. But we did not find any weapon that could have been used in the murders,” ACP Jaafar later told reporters.
“We believe this is the doing of more than one person,” he said, adding that the police would investigate from all angles including the motive of the crime.
The couple’s baby has been handed over to the welfare department.
ACP Jaafar said the dead man was a suspected drug addict and had been on the police wanted list in connection with nine house break-in cases and a gang robbery since last year.
The case is classified as murder under Section 320 of the Penal Code.
Those with information should call the nearest police station or the Manjung district police at 05-689 9222.
