Three Myanmar family members were found stabbed to death yesterday in their home in Taman Tasik Permai, Ampang. The mother’s body was found in the master bedroom while her 7-year-old daughter and their 22-year-old relative were in the living room.

The 39-year-old mother’s husband made the shocking discovery when he returned home at 9am from religious classes in Sri Petaling. The family’s 1-year-old daughter was apparently spared by the killers.

The family are United Nations High Commission refugee card holders, who have been in the country for the past three years.

Police found a bloody kitchen knife in the house which is believed to be the murder weapon. They also found signs of struggle and the back door forced open. The case is being investigated under Section 302 for murder.
