PETALING JAYA: A medical examination conducted on a man related to murder victim Jackie Ooi Po Ing has confirmed that the injuries found on his hands and neck were sustained in a separate incident. 

Deputy OCPD Asst Comm Hassan Abdul Rahman said the man injured himself last Saturday and the following day. 

“On Saturday, the man slipped from a staircase while he was replacing a light bulb in his house while early the next day, he fell off a motorcycle,” he said.  

The man was sent to the University Malaya Medical Centre for examination on Monday when he was found to have some scratch wounds and bruises on his hands and neck. 

ACP Hassan said police were still waiting for a DNA report on the man, which is expected to be ready in two to three days. 

LAST FAREWELL: Campbell consoling his son Simon and daughter Melissa during the funeral service Wednesday.

However, police have detained his passport, as they require his help in investigations. 

ACP Hassan said they were looking for evidence and urged witnesses or those with information about the murder to contact investigating officer Asst Supt Ali Kassim of the district police headquarters at 03-7956 2222. 

Early yesterday, hundreds of family members and friends joined Ooi’s Australian husband Alastair Thomas Campbell, daughter Melissa and son Simon at the funeral service in St Ignatius Church in Taman Mayang here. 

Several of them, especially Ooi’s sisters, broke down during the service. 

Ooi’s body was cremated at the MPPJ crematorium in Kampung Tunku here in the afternoon. 

On Sunday, Ooi, a 40-year-old managing director of a production company, was found strangled in her office in Dataran Sunway at Kota Damansara here. 

Her husband, who returned to the office in the evening, found her body on the floor with a nylon string coiled around her neck. 

He was said to have left to attend to some work after sending Jackie to the office at about 3.30pm. 

Police have yet to establish the motive and no arrest has been made.
