SIBU: A man, wanted by the police in connection with an attempted murder and several other criminal cases, was found dead yesterday with multiple slash wounds in his house here.
Police found Tang Ting Siew, 40, lying on his back in a big pool of blood with more than 10 gaping wounds on his body in his bedroom at 3.25am when they arrived at his house at Taman Permai here after responding to a public call.
Sources said Tang was sleeping alone when three cars stopped in front of his house and more than 10 men came out.
The men forced their way into the house, with some climbing over the fence, they said.
The men, sources said, surrounded the house and kicked down the main door.
They then barged into Tang’s room and hacked him with the parang.
Sources also said that within the 10 minutes of the incident, the intruders smashed the victim’s car, his two glass table-tops, his television screen and the glass panelling of a cupboard before escaping.
Investigations later revealed that Tang’s car was a Nissan Sentra although it had Toyota logos at the front and back, a false registration number and a tampered road tax sticker.
Tang was staying in the new single-storey semi-detached house on his own after he moved out of his father’s house at Jalan Pipit here more than a month ago.
Three months before he moved in, sources said someone had apparently sprayed graffiti on the wall of the house which read “Owe debt, pay money” in Chinese.
Tang is divorced with two children, aged 6 and 11, who are now staying with their maternal grandmother.
He was put on the police wanted list in connection with the shooting of a 26-year-old odd-job worker on Jan 11.
Tang, who is also wanted in connection with car theft cases, used to work as a car salesman and later worked in a timber camp. Later, he was involved in direct-selling.
