Cops: Woman beheaded because she would not give son money for drugs

SHAH ALAM: A murder victim in Kuala Selangor was beheaded because she refused to give her jobless son money to buy drugs, say police.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said the motive for the murder on Saturday (Jan 15) was revealed while investigating the suspect.

Kuala Selangor OCPD Supt Ramli Kasa said on Saturday that the suspect tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine after he was arrested.

“Our investigation found that only the suspect and victim were at home at the time,” he told reporters at Selangor police headquarters on Monday (Jan 17).

He said further checks found that the suspect had been arrested in 2014 for criminal intimidation against his mother and also had a record for buying drugs.

It was reported that a man, believed to be high on drugs, decapitated his own mother at their home at Kampung Baru Pasir Penambang, Kuala Selangor.

The suspect’s sister, who went to the house to check on her mother after she could not be contacted, saw him covered in blood as he fled from the house.

She then called the police.

The incident occurred at around 5.45pm on Saturday (Jan 15).

Police arrived at the scene and found the blood-covered remains of the 56-year-old woman.

The suspect, a 28-year-old unemployed man, was caught with the help of villagers.
