KULAI: The charred body of a senior citizen was found at a rubbish dumping ground in Taman Putri here. 

Johor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Azman Ayob said the 63-year-old woman’s body was found at around 8.05am on Friday after a report was received from a member of the public. 

A team of policemen including forensics and the K9 unit were sent to the scene to investigate.   

“The body was initially found by a man who was in the area to look for worms as fishing bait,” he said.  

SAC Azman added that the area, which was surrounded by bushes, was also used as a shortcut to a nearby quarry.   

He said a post-mortem report showed that the woman’s body was about 60% burnt and there were no signs of injury.  

He added that the woman stayed with her husband, mother-in-law and a son while her two daughters lived in Singapore.
