PETALING JAYA, Feb 27 — An elderly woman is believed to have been murdered in her home days earlier after a stench began emanating from within her condo unit.
Petaling Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zani Che Din said the police was alerted to a foul odour coming from the third floor of a flat at Petaling Utama PJS 1/52 around 1pm today.
“One of the deceased’s neighbours made the call and we dispatched a police team over to the scene.
“We then found the decomposing body of the deceased sprawled across and blocking one of the room’s door,” he said.
Mohd Zani said the deceased was identified as Chan Yip Yong, 66, who was last seen by neighbours on Friday.
He said the police would have to wait for post-mortem findings to determine the exact cause of death.
