Moey family urges public to leave them alone and stop speculating

GEORGE TOWN: Family members of 20-year-old Moey Yun Peng, who was killed after his SUV was hit by another car before flipping over the Penang Bridge, have urged the public to stop speculating over the incident.

Moey's brother, who declined to be named, said the family will also be seeking justice over the case, as video recordings have showed that the other lost control before hitting Moey's SUV on Sunday (Jan 20).

"Please stop speculating, and just leave us alone.

"Let my brother go in peace. My parents are very sad," he said at the Seberang Jaya Hospital mortuary.

The man also urged the police to investigate the case thoroughly, especially the car driver who also happened to be Moey's childhood friend.

Moey's body was extricated from the wreckage after rescuers retrieved it from the sea under the Penang Bridge at about 6pm today (Jan 22).

The body was then sent to Seberang Jaya Hospital for post mortem, which took almost three hours.
