KULAIJAYA: Police are checking missing persons and kidnap reports in their investigation over a body found chopped up and packed in plastic bags on the North-South Expressway here.
District OCPD Supt Ruslan Khalid said there were no identification documents on the victim, who was believed to have been murdered three days earlier.
There is still no clue so far as to the identity of the victim. He is believed to be between 30 and 40 years old.
There were stab wounds on the back of his body and neck.
PLUS Bhd workers made the gruesome find when they were carrying out a maintenance clean-up on Friday morning at Km21 heading south.
One of the workers found a severed head, besides other body parts in the plastic bags.
Supt Ruslan said: “We are still waiting for the post-mortem report of the male victim from Hospital Sultanah Aminah. We are also uncertain about his nationality and cause of death.”
Anyone with information should come forward and contact the police hotline at 07-2212999 to aid in the investigation of the case, which was classified under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, he said.
