JEMPOL: An elderly couple whose remains were found in an oil palm smallholding in Mahsan near here died from heart attacks, says Jempol OCPD Supt Hoo Chang Hook.

He said these were the findings of a post-mortem examination carried out on the remains of Chang Tong, 83, and his wife Wong Kwan Thai, 82, at Jempol Hospital earlier Tuesday (April 18).

"We have classified both cases as sudden death," he said.

The couple were reported missing after going out on Sunday (April 16).

It is learnt that the couple had gone out for breakfast together before heading to their smallholding-cum-durian orchard.

The couple's relatives began a search for them the following day and found their remains around 4pm.

The man's body was found in the car and his wife a short distance away from their vehicle.

Separately, Supt Hoo said a viral video clip showing fireworks being played in front of a bank in Baua was not new.

A probe shows that the clip was recorded around 9.50pm on June 14, 2018.

"Two suspects were detained in connection with the case and one was charged in the Magistrate's Court on Oct 31 the same year," he said, adding that the suspect was charged under Section 8 of the Explosives Act.

He advised the public not to forward such clips as it can cause unnecessary worry and anxiety among the people and that action can be taken against anyone doing so.
