KUALA LUMPUR: A five-month-old baby boy, who was reported missing yesterday, has been found dead inside a refrigerator at the babysitter’s house in Taman Nakhoda, Batu Caves.
Police said Adam Rayqal Mohd Sufi's body was found stuffed inside the freezer compartment of the fridge on the second floor of the house, at 10.30pm last night.
The child’s father, Mohd Sufi Naeif Mohd Fauzi, 28, had lodged a report a few hours earlier after he was told by his wife that someone resembling him had picked up Adam Rayqal at the babysitter's home.
He had also uploaded a photograph of his son on social media, seeking help to locate the boy.
Gombak police chief Asistant Commissioner Ali Ahmad said the child was found wrapped in a napkin and placed inside a green zipper bag.
He said the 33-year-old babysitter and her 36-year old housemate were arrested to facilitate investigations.
He said police decided to search the babysitter's home after they found discrepancies in her statement.
"She then showed the police team where the body was kept," he said.
Ali added that the case has been classified as murder, under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
Adam Rayqal's remains have been sent to Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post mortem.
