Neighbours can't sleep thinking of family of three who were found hanged

NILAI: Neighbours of the woman who was found dead and hanging from the ceiling fan along with her two children at a house in Taman Albury, Lenggeng near here was someone who was friendly and cheerful.

A representative of the residents association, who declined to be identified, said most of the people in the housing area knew one another. The association actively organises joint programmes for the benefit of residents.

The representative explained that the incident was shocking, since the children who were three and six years-old respectively were also found dead.

"For those who live on the same road as the deceased, they knew each other and always spoke to one another. She was a friendly person, and she never showed any peculiar behaviour.

"Sometimes, we would bump into each other outside the neighbourhood. She would be seen accompanying the children as they played outside or when they rode their bicycles. However we hardly saw her husband, perhaps because he was working."

She said residents were still in disbelief because the woman seemed like a jovial person.

"Some of the residents cannot sleep thinking about what happened. They are sad, distraught and have mixed feelings about it.

"We're still waiting for answers from the police regarding the tragic incident. Whatever it is, the police must be allowed to carry out the investigation."

The woman and her two children were found dead after they were hanged from the ceiling fan in their house on Monday.


The Lenggeng police station received a phone call from a man regarding the tragic incident at 9.25pm.

Nilai district police chief Superintendent Abdul Malik Hasim said a post-mortem conducted on the woman's remains found the cause of death to be pressure on her neck from being hung.

"The post-mortem was carried out at the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital (HTJ) Forensics Department in Seremban, and the cause of death was the same for the two children.

"So far investigations found that the husband of the victim was not directly involved in the incident. However investigations are still ongoing under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder," he said.
