A YOUTH who found the body of an elderly man hanged from a tree beside a road in Ipoh posted what he saw on Facebook instead of lodging a police report, wrote China Press.

He commented that there was a xian yu (salted fish) a colloquial meaning for a dead body in Chinese at around noon on June 22.

The remark attracted many comments from his friends, who even indicated that they “liked” the posting, but nobody lodged a police report.

It was believed that the man had committed suicide because he could no longer bear the pain of his illness.

Ipoh deputy OCPD Supt Anuar Othman urged the public to lodge a police report instead of discussing such matters on Facebook.
