Cops quiz William’s parents and brother
KUALA LUMPUR: Police have recorded statements from the parents of William Yau Zhen Zhong, his seven-year-old brother and two of his relatives as part of their ongoing investigations into his death.
Yesterday, his mother, Goh Ying Ying, 26, and brother were brought by the police to the Child Interview Centre in Jalan Sultan Salahuddin at around 10.45am to be questioned.
Both spent over six hours at the centre before leaving at around 5.10pm.
Meanwhile, William’s father, Yau Kok Kang, 32, was questioned at the Subang Jaya police headquarters.
Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli confirmed that their statements had been recorded.
Authorities had recently recorded statements from the boy’s great-grandmother, great-granduncle, uncle and an aunt following allegations that the boy might have been abused.
A 21-year-old woman, said to be responsible for the allegations on the Internet, also had her statement recorded by the police.
The woman is believed to be a neighbour of the child’s great-grandmother.
Six-year-old William had gone missing in Putra Heights at about 8.30pm on Jan 16 after he reportedly left the family car while his parents were in an electrical shop.
A fisherman in Kampung Sungai Sireh, near Klang, found the child’s body snagged on his boat at about 6.30pm on Jan 24.
In MALACCA, another two of William’s relatives — his paternal grandmother, Chee Chou Moi, 68, and aunt who is in her mid 30s, — had their statements recorded.
State Deputy CID chief Superintendent P. R. Gunarajan said they had passed all the necessary documents to the Subang Jaya police.
