Woman falls from building after attending loverís funeral
SERDANG: A 22-year-old woman died after she fell from a high-rise building here - right after she had attended the funeral of her boyfriend some 500m away.
The woman, who was from Bukit Mertajam, had attended the funeral at Batu 14 Cemetery in the morning before she was believed to have gone to the nearest tall building.
Serdang OCPD Supt Abdul Razak Elias said they were alerted by residents from the Koi Tropika Condominium at Batu 14, Puchong, who found the body of the woman sprawled in a pool of blood on the parking lot at around 5.15pm yesterday.
“Initial investigations revealed that the woman has attended her boyfriend's funeral in a cemetery about 500m away from the condominium hours earlier,” he said.
Supt Abdul Razak said the boyfriend, from Kg Bunga Melor, Batu 14, Puchong, had died about two weeks ago and his body was released for burial yesterday.
“Her injuries are consistent with a fall from a height,” he said, adding that the body had been sent to the Serdang Hospital for post-mortem.
He said the police had ruled out foul play and were investigating the case as sudden death.
