Decomposed Body Found In An Apartment In Labuan

LABUAN: The decomposed body of a 44-year-old man, who is believed to have died four days ago, was found in an apartment at 3.45pm yesterday (Monday).

Labuan acting police chief DSP Mohd Ibrahim Mohd Ghani said the deceased, a civil servant, was found unconsciously on the sofa in his house on the third floor of Taman Mutiara Apartment.

He said the police was alerted by members of the public on the foul-smelling liquid dripping on the zink outside of the balcony of the deceased’s house to the neighbour’s house on the lower floor.

“The discovery of the body was following the purging fluid that comes out of decomposing body that led to the police personnel to force open the iron-gate to enter the house,” he said.

He said the police did not suspect foul play as no injuries found on his body and police have classified the case as sudden death.
