SHAH ALAM: The semi-nude body of a woman, believed to have been bludgeoned, was found under an overhead bridge in the Malaysian town of Klang on Monday morning (Dec 18).
The 37-year-old woman, who is divorced and a mother of two, was almost naked with her shorts and underwear lowered to her ankles.
A 54-year-old man and two other people have been detained for questioning.
According to Klang (South) police chief Shamsul Amar Ramli, the victim suffered bruises above the right eye and a bump on the forehead.
“The woman was probably killed elsewhere before her semi-nude body was dumped at the area,” he said in a statement.
The police chief added that based on initial investigations, the victim had been arrested for a drug-related offence and her two children, aged 10 and 15, were under the care of a sibling in Shah Alam.
The Star reported that the victim had lost contact with her family two years ago.
