Cops release photofits

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have released the photofits of a man and a woman, said to be locals, in connection with the abduction-cum-brutal murder of eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jaziman. 

The photofits were produced from descriptions given by the public. 

The man is between 35 and 40, 168cm tall, with fair complexion. He went to housing areas in Bangsar inquiring about a room to rent for himself and his daughter. 

He approached numerous house owners around the time Nurin went missing. 

The woman is in her 20s, 153cm tall, with shoulder-length hair and had worn a red dress when she was seen near a dark-blue Diadora sports bag in which Nurin’s body was found at a shoplot in Petaling Utama on Sept 17. The woman was seen in the afternoon, a day before we found Nurin’s body. 

Federal CID director Comm Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee said anyone who had seen a person carrying the bag between Sept 16 and 17 in the area to should contact the police immediately.

When asked if a child pornography syndicate was behind the crime, Comm Christopher said that police were investigating all possible angles. 

Speaking at a press conference, he said the culprit or culprits could also be responsible for the Kampung Baru molest cases, in which two girls, aged five and six, had been lured by the promise of ice-cream. 

The girls were then molested and had brinjals forced into their private parts before being released several hours later. 

Comm Christopher also confirmed that the four men detained in Shah Alam in connection with Nurin’s case last Thursday were released at 4pm on Monday. 

He refused to reveal why the four, aged between 27 and 35, were released even though their remand order was to end on Oct 4. 

Searching: Kons Muhammad Ridzwan Husain (left) and Kons Rashiddin Baharudin from the Petaling Jaya police headquarters asking nursing college student M. Mutthalagi, 21, Universiti Malaya student Jessie Chew Chia Sin, 21, and sales assistant Yusnita Yusoff, 29, yesterday whether they had seen the people in the photofits anywhere in Petaling Jaya Old Town area.

“We are still waiting for their DNA test results but released them based on other evidence,” he said.  

Comm Christopher said this leaves only the 23-year-old Indonesian woman detained on Saturday at a stall in Nilai still in custody. 

“She is being detained at the University Malaya Medical Centre where doctors are trying to retrieve the subscriber identification module (SIM) card that she swallowed when she was taken to court for remand,” he said. 

The woman is believed to have sent SMSes to a police hotline number, claiming that Nurin was in her custody days after the girl went missing on Aug 20 following a trip to a night market. 

When met at his house, Nurin Jazlin’s father Jazimin Abdul Jalil said he did not recognise the two faces. He also asked whether the police had said if the two people were foreigners or locals. 

His wife, Norazian Bistaman, hoped that the police would find the two soon. 

Nurin’s badly bruised body was found stuffed in a sports bag in Jalan PJS1/48 in Petaling Jaya on Sept 17.  

A post-mortem revealed that she had been sexually assaulted with a cucumber and brinjal.
