KUALA LUMPUR: A police forensic team, which had gone into a secondary jungle to further investigate the skeletal remains of a woman found on Sunday, discovered a human skull at a nearby stream. 

The skull was found yesterday in a plastic rice bag tied with a black wire and filled with cement.  

On Sunday morning, skeletal remains, believed to be that of a woman, were found in the secondary jungle in Taman Cempaka Ampang. 

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Azri Ahmad said a police forensic team, which had gone to gather more evidence, spotted a plastic bag in an almost dry stream at 10.40am. 

Police believed both the victims had been murdered elsewhere before their remains were abandoned in the secondary jungle. 

ACP Azri also urged those with missing family members to contact the district police headquarters at 03-4252 2222.
