KUALA LUMPUR: For several days, tenants of a four-storey shoplot in Gombak were troubled by a stench emanating from within their building but had no inkling it was caused by a decomposing body buried under a layer of cement.
The unidentified woman is suspected to have been murdered in the shoplot and could have been buried there for a week.
The gruesome discovery was made by the building owner who for a week received numerous complaints from his tenants regarding the stench emitting throughout the shop lot near the Selayang wholesale market. At 12.30pm yesterday, the owner conducted an inspection and spotted toes protruding out of a cement layering at the landing of a staircase leading to a vacant second floor unit. He immediately alerted the police.
