Three people, two men and a woman, aged between 29 and 35 years, are wanted by the police in relation to the murder of a 34-year-old widow last Tuesday. The suspects are neighbours to the victim in Kampung Hujung Padang, Cheng.
It is believed that the suspects and the victim were involved in an argument before she went missing. The widow’s decomposed and burnt body was found by an angler in an oil palm plantation in Krubong. Her body was identified by one of her five children who recognized a locket on her.
The post-mortem revealed that the victim had a slash wound on her neck, which likely caused her death.
The victim’s children, aged between 5 and 18 years, will be getting assistance from the State Public Affairs and Welfare department for the time-being. The family had been receiving financial help from the state since the death of the father two months ago.
