A headless body with the torso all chopped up and stored inside a black suitcase was found on the side of the North-South Expressway in Malaysia on 17 January, according to Berita Harian Malaysia.
The identity and gender of the victim are presently unclear, and the Malaysian police are investigating the case as murder (which carries the death penalty).
The Malaysian police said that they were alerted to the bag. which was spotted by passers-by at about 11.45am.
Berita Harian reported that the suitcase contained more body parts; but the head, arms and legs of the torso are still missing and as such, the authorities are unable to identify the body.
There were also no identification documents on the body.
The deceased also didn’t appear to have had a “BCG” injection (which are vaccinations given to all children at birth in Malaysia), implying the possibility that the deceased might’ve been a foreigner.
The Malaysian police, forensic team and K9 unit are presently conducting further investigations into the murder case.
