Three hacked bodies found in KL cemetery
Three hacked bodies were found in a Christian cemetery at Jalan Kuari in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
Authorities were alerted of the grisly find at around 1pm on Sunday (March 15) by the cemetery's caretaker, said city CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad.
The fully clothed bodies, covered in slash wounds, were found sprawled on the ground, he said.
“The bodies of the men were positioned some 30m away from each other,” he added.
SAC Zainuddin said no identification documents were found on them.
He also said that as there were no BCG vaccine scars on the bodies, police believe they may be foreigners. The BCG vaccine is mandatory at birth for Malaysians.
An eyewitness told the police that a group of seven to eight men were at the area drinking alcohol at about 9pm on Saturday.
"We believe that the men were fighting among themselves under the influence of alcohol," said SAC Zainuddin.
“There were beer cans scattered at the scene. We also found candles which may have been used to light up the area.
“The group may have been from a nearby Myanmar settlement located about 1km from the cemetery,” he said.
SAC Zainuddin added that a special task force has been set up to track down the suspects behind the cold-blooded murder.
No weapons were recovered from the scene and the motive of the crime is still being investigated.
The case has been classified as murder.
