Man caught trying to dump girlfriend daughter’s body near crocodile farm
A man who was acting suspiciously near the woods in Malaysia was chased down by police who reportedly found the body of a 13-year-old girl in the trunk of his car.
The suspect was standing by some bushes outside his vehicle near a crocodile farm on Tuesday when cops drove up and witnessed him slam the trunk of his car and drive away, according to the Singapore Strait Times.
After a brief police chase, cops cornered the man near the waterfront in the Malaysian state of Sarawak.
“The patrol team instructed the man to open the car boot, where they found the body of teenage girl,” Sarawak Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Dev Kumar said in a statement.
“In attempt to hide the murderous act, the man wanted to dump the body of the victim in the bushes, but his attempt was foiled by the patrol team.”
Police said the suspect had an argument with the girl — who was the daughter of his girlfriend — and eventually strangled her.
