JOHOR BARU: The charred body found at an oil palm plantation in Batu Pahat several days ago is that of a businessman who was last seen in the city.
It is learnt that Yong Wen Song’s (pic) identity has been established after the authorities received the DNA results.
Apparently, Yong, who was involved in plastic manufacturing, was last spotted arguing with a man and woman near his home in Polo Park, Taman Iskandar.
He was then seen getting into the car of another man at about 2.30am on Friday.
A source claimed that police were studying the close-circuit television (CCTV) footage from the area where he was taken to.
Police are also checking on reports that a man, possibly Yong, with injuries to his face, was seen at a restaurant in Danga Bay.
A woman was accusing him of committing theft.
The injured man was then seen leaving the premises with some unknown men. Later that day, police found his body at the plantation.
Earlier, a missing person’s report was lodged by Yong’s family members after which his car was found at 1.30pm on July 4 in Nusajaya.
Police arrested seven suspects, including two women, to facilitate investigations. They are aged between 26 and 45.
A credit card belonging to Yong was found in one of the suspects’ car, which was spotted in Tampoi.
A family member declined to talk about what might have happened, except that they were making funeral arrangements.
