MIRI, Aug 18: Dismantled parts of a lorry believed to be the same one reported missing and belonging to murder victim George Tang Kee Luang, 60, was recovered today today (Sunday) from a bush area in Tukau.
The parts were transported to Miri Central police station (CPS) to assist a police probe into the case.
Miri Police chief ACP Lim Meng Seah has confirmed the 12.25 pm discovery when contacted late this evening.
A Miri Criminal Investigation Department (CID) team led by senior investigation officer ASP Joyce Sigai were led by one of the suspects to the location.
The day before, Miri CID discovered several items believed to have belonged to the victim gone at a house in Kampung Lusut.
They also found and retrieved a knife which was believed to have been used in Tang’s murder.
It was believed that Tang was murdered elsewhere before his body was dumped into Sungai Niah.
The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
On July 2, the lower half of Tang’s body was found floating in Sungai Niah by two crab hunters. He had been reported missing on June 29 by his family.
On August 15, police detained six local men in connection with the case and the next day (Aug 16) ASP Joyce’s application to remand all the suspects for seven days to assist the police probe into the case was granted. — DayakDaily
