KUALA LUMPUR: A five-month-old boy who was reported missing after being abducted by an unknown individual was found dead at the home of his caretaker in Taman Nakhoda, Batu Caves, here late last night.
The body of Adam Rayqal Mohd Sufi was found in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator at the house at about 11pm.
Gombak police chief ACP Ali Ahmad said the victim had been stuffed in a green bag and was fully clothed.
“The discovery of the victim was based on information provided by the caretaker during questioning which raised suspicions.
“However, an initial examination of the boy found no injuries and the body was sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for post-mortem,” he told reporters here today.
Ali said police had detained the 33-year-old caretaker along with a housemate aged 36. He added that the case was classified as murder.
Yesterday, it was reported that an unknown individual had run off with the boy from his caretaker’s home.
The case went viral on Facebook after the father, Mohd Sufi Naeif Mohd Fauzi, uploaded a picture of the toddler and asked for the public’s help in locating him.
