The charred and naked body of 30-year-old Chew Thiam Hock was found at a sports centre in Cheras Perdana, Balakong, yesterday at 4:30pm. His genitals were severed.
A group of teenage girls discovered the body when they were going to the park nearby to play netball.
Police believe that the unemployed victim from Kampung Baru Balakong was attacked and burned by his assailants at the park around noon. His inner thighs had slash wounds and his body was 80% burnt. It is believed that he had tried to crawl up a small hill and climb a flight of stairs to reach his motorcycle.
Investigations are ongoing while police believe that the motive of the killing could be revenge or jealousy.
