JOHOR BARU: The death of a man here has been classified as a Sudden Death Report (SDR), says Johor police.

State police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said the body of the 30-year-old victim was found lying at the pedestrian and motorcycle tunnel at Taman Tampoi Utama here last Sunday (Oct 8).

“Initial investigation found the victim was believed to have fallen about two metres from the cliff," he told reporters in a press conference at the Johor police headquarters here on Wednesday (Oct 11).

Comm Kamarul Zaman said the body was discovered by passers-by who passed through the tunnel, with policemen from the Tampoi police station deployed to the tunnel located at Jalan Sri Perkasa, Taman Tampoi Utama at 7am.

“Preliminary police investigations found no foul play or criminal elements in the death of the man," said Comm Kamarul Zaman.

He said objects such as tree twigs, leaves and dust found on the victim’s body showed they were similar to those found on the last place where the victim was last seen.

Comm Kamarul Zaman said the victim was dressed in a woman’s clothing when found at the scene, adding that the investigation also found the victim was last seen at an entertainment outlet in the city before he was found dead.

“The victim suffered head injuries believed to have been caused from the fall, with no strangulation marks or bruises," he said.

Comm Kamarul Zaman said the victim’s belongings such as a cellphone, handbag, purse and MyKad were not missing, adding that a post-mortem conducted on the victim would determine whether he was intoxicated.

“We have contacted the victim’s next-of-kin to identify the victim, with a last known address in Perak," he said.
