Beheaded toddler found in KL
Severed head was lying beside body
The beheaded body of a toddler girl, clad only in her diapers was found on the bank of the Klang river near a KTM station in Kuala Lumpur last night.
The toddler, identified to be between 21/2 to 3-years-old, was found with her severed head beside her body.
The New Straits Times (NST) reported that the grisly discovery was made by a member of public at 9pm Thursday.
The Malaysian newspaper also reported that a witness who called police described seeing "a dark-skin foreign man of above age 30".
The man fled the scene when he realised that he had been seen.
The police chief assistant commissioner for the Dangi Wang area Zainuddin Ahmad said the witness saw the suspect taking the victim towards the murder scene from a shopping complex near Pudu Central.
They are disseminating the description of the suspect given by the witness "to all (police) stations and officers" and that a "massive manhunt has been launched to track his whereabouts".
Victim was with her mother earlier on Thursday
The Malaysian police said that their initial investigations show the victim's mother brought her to the shopping complex earlier on Thursday.
While not much is known at this about how the girl came to be with the suspect, forensic investigations by the police suggest that the victim was murdered by a piece of marble.
