PETALING JAYA: A passer-by made a gruesome discovery of the top half of a man’s body wrapped in a gunny sack in Ulu Yam, police said.
Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt Shukri Yaacob said that police were alerted to the grisly find by a call from the man who found the body in a rubber plantation at 2.10pm yesterday.
The plantation is located about 1.5km away from the Ulu Yam main road.
Supt Shukri said police were still searching for the lower half of the male body.
“We have deployed our K9 unit to search for the rest of the man’s body, but none has been found so far.
“However, we found a meat cleaver, some nylon string, bits of clothing and burnt bits of plastic bag about 50m away from where the body was found,” he said when contacted yesterday.
Supt Shukri said that the body was found by a 33-year-old foreigner who was looking for frogs in the area.
He added that the dead man’s identity was yet to be determined.
The man was believed to be a foreign national as there were no BCG marks on either of his forearms.
The body was later sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital for a post-mortem.
Police have classified the case as murder.
