Cops want to help Brunei police over case of woman in cement wall
By FARIK ZOLKEPLI
PETALING JAYA: Malaysian police would like to help in the investigations into the gruesome murder of the 39-year-old Malaysian woman whose body was found cemented into a wall at a friend's house in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, on Sunday.
Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin said Friday the Brunei police had yet to make any request.
“We are concerned as a Malaysian was murdered in such a brutal manner,” he said.
Comm Mohd Bakri said he understood the high-profile nature of the case but the public should let the Brunei police conduct their investigations.
“Our condolences to the victim's family,” he said.
Voon Su Ching from Miri who was in the car wash and repair business in Brunei, had been house-sitting a friend's bungalow during the Chinese New Year holidays.
She was reported missing last Wednesday.
Her body was discovered by the bungalow owner on Sunday night when the owner spotted a strange 3m-high cement slab in the garden with a stench coming from it.
It is believed that the murderer had covered Voon's body with zinc sheets before pouring cement on her.
Brunei police have detained a man, in his 40s, to assist in investigations.
He was spotted sending two trucks of cement to the crime scene.
