Man suspected of beheading his own mum


KUALA SELANGOR: A man, believed to be high on drugs, allegedly decapitated his own mother at their home at Kampung Baru Pasir Penambang.

The suspect’s sister, who went there 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.

Kuala Selangor OCPD Supt Ramli Kasa said they were alerted to the incident at around 5.45pm on Saturday.

“One of the woman’s other children, feared something was amiss when she could not be contacted, went to the house that she shares with her husband, to check on her.

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

“The suspect was seen by his sister covered in blood before he ran into the bushes behind the house,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He said the suspect, a 28-year-old jobless man, was caught with the help of villagers while hiding in the bushes nearby.

“Police also seized a parang at a bathroom in the house, believed to be the weapon used.

“Our investigations revealed the suspect and victim lived in the same house,” he said, adding that the suspect tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine.

He said police have applied to the Kuala Selangor Magistrate’s Court to remand the suspect for seven days to assist investigations under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

Supt Ramli said the case has been classified as murder.

“We are now investigating the motive for the murder,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sinar Harian reported that a pall of gloom was upon the victim’s home yesterday, with only recitations of the Quran being audible from it.

The Malay daily also said family members were seen clearing things from the house and cleaning up.

However, none of them were willing to speak to the media.

One of them said the deceased’s body was sent to Hospital Sungai Buloh.

“We are sorry, but we are not accepting interviews at the moment; we are still in shock over this. Our family is appealing to the media to give us room to come to terms with what has happened,” said the person.
