Nurin Murder Case: Drug Addict and Security Guard Arrested

14 January 2008
Kuala Lumpur

Months after 8-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin was found murdered in a sports bag, police have arrested a 43-year-old drug addict and a 32-year-old security guard.

The drug addict was found along Lorong Haji Taib in the Chow Kit area on Saturday at 11pm following a tip-off. He is being investigated at the Bukit Aman police headquarters.

The security guard was nabbed at an abandoned building at Lot 252-254 along Jalan Tun Razak on Sunday at 10am. It is believed that this guard resembles the photofit of Nurin’s kidnapper released by the police and he also owns a black Modenas Kriss motorcycle. Closed-circuit television footage at the scene where the sports bag was found showed the suspect riding a similar motorcycle.

The motorcycle from the guard, who is from Kampung Paya Jaras, Sungai Buloh, and his mobile phone, two SIM cards, two helmets and a jacket were seized by the police.

It is believed that one of the rooms in the abandoned building was cleaned up and furnished with a television, cupboard and a mattress. The room had an attached bathroom.

Police brought four girls who were victims of the “Kampung Baru molester” to the building at 3:40pm yesterday and left ten minutes later.
