KUANTAN: The remains of Briton Gareth David Huntley have been collected by undertakers acting on behalf of the British High Commission.
The undertakers arrived at the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital mortuary at about 11am yesterday and left with the body at about 1.30pm after finalising the documents.
No family members was present.
It is learnt that the body will be taken to Kuala Lumpur before being flown back to Huntley’s home countrytomorrow.
Huntley, who had gone to Pulau Tioman to volunteer at a turtle conservation project, had reportedly gone trekking alone to the Lubuk Teja waterfall on May 27 and had not been seen alive since then.
His highly decomposed body was discovered by search and rescue personnel in the Mentawak River, about 20m from a kayak storage unit at the Juara Lagoon chalet on June 4.
On Saturday, Pahang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Sharifuddin Ab Ghani confirmed the body was Huntley’s after DNA test results determined a positive match with blood samples collected from his mother Janet Southwell. The cause of death is still undetermined.
