Police: Myanmar SLAUGHTER HOUSE discovered! In Bukit Mertajam, Penang.


There have been 51 murders in the state involving 33 foreigners over the past 11 months.

Update: 8 December 2014: add one more murder of a foreigner. Total murders:52. Total foreigners: 34.

The Mystery of the murdered Myanmarese. 23 in Penang so far!

The gruesome mystery of the 1 head, 3 headless bodies and numerous body parts, and another head..


BUTTERWORTH: A decomposed body of a foreign man wrapped in a sarong was found in the bushes near an estate in Tasek Gelugor here earlier.

In the 5.30pm find, a passer-by spotted a body along Jalan Bukit Tok Alang Jarak, after a putrid odour spread around the vicinity.

A police forensic team on site said initial investigations showed that the man could have died four days ago and was murdered elsewhere.

The team declined to say if there were any wounds on the body.


Police had earlier denied that the murders of Myanmar nationals in Penang over the past 11 months were because of communal clashes. 

On Thursday, however, State police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said, “We can tell from the way the victims died … it was revenge they brought here from their country. The assailants did not use firearms in their killings. They used machetes to chop their victims into pieces.”

GEORGE TOWN: Barely a week after a house believed to be the scene of murders involving Myanmar nationals was discovered in Bukit Mertajam, another foreigner was found dead with his throat slit in Relau here.

The man, who also had slash and stab wounds on his ear, hand, abdomen and back, was found in front of a shrine near Metropolitan Park.

A schoolteacher walking to the carpark stumbled across the body at about 10am yesterday. She then alerted the police.


Just as the police announced new leads in the murders of Myanmarese, here is another throat-slit case. Myanmarese? High likelihood.

“Initial findings showed that there were signs of struggle and self-defence, from the wounds inflicted on the deceased,” he said.

New lead found in Myanmar murders: Police

7 December 2014 @ 8:03 PM

GEORGE TOWN: Police have obtained new leads in the investigations into several Myanmar murder and dismembering cases in the state, said Penang police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi.

He said the information obtained from questioning 17 Myanmar men had led police to find the location of a body to solve the jigsaw of heads, arms, legs and torso of two victims found dumped in several places all over Bukit Mertajam.

“A suspect admitted to murdering the victims before dismembering them and one of the torsos was found in a canal in Jalan Kampung Permatang, Sungai Bakap, near here, two weeks ago.

“So far, police have only found two heads, hands, legs and a torso of the victims. Maybe one of the victim’s body had drifted into the river or sea,” he told reporters after launching a Police Community Programme, here, today.



Crackdown on illegal Myanmar settlements to solve murders

PUTRAJAYA, Dec 6 ― Police will crack down on illegal settlements of Myanmar nationals in Penang where 23 of the country’s men and women have been found gruesomely killed with their bodies dismembered and dumped in isolated areas.

Newly appointed Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim hoped the crackdown would stop the murders and lead to solving them.

He also said federal police were ready to take over the case from the Penang police.

“Bukit Aman police will continue to monitor the investigation led by the Penang police. We are ready to take over if necessary,” he told reporters after attending the Home Ministry’s Innovation Day celebration with Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi here yesterday.

When asked if the violence was linked to communal clashes between the Rohingya Muslims and Buddhists from Rakhine State, Myanmar, Noor Rashid said: “Memang budaya mereka macam itu (indeed their culture is such).”

In the past two weeks, state police picked up 15 Myanmar suspects in relation to the murders, including the main suspect, a man from the Arakan district in Myanmar, who admitted to killing three of his countrymen due to ethnic tensions between Muslims and Buddhists in his country.

All those arrested were men aged between 20 and 40.

Penang police believe revenge was the motive for the killings, but declined to confirm they were linked to conflicts between Myanmar’s majority Buddhist community and minority Rohingya Muslims, who have suffered persecution by the country’s ruling junta.

In September, Malay Mail highlighted the flashpoint of the violence was in Seberang Prai where Rohingya Muslims from the western Rakhine state were the main suspects in the killings.

Killer looks like ‘Sivaji The Boss’


Murderer with Anwar (seated) and other residents of Kampung Pisang, Machang Bubok, Bukit Mertajam are surprised to discover a killer living in their midst. (inset) Rajinikanth in the role of ‘The Boss’.

BUKIT MERTAJAM: The man believed to be the mastermind behind the brutal killings of Myanmar nationals has been described by a neighbour as looking like the main character of Sivaji The Boss, a Tamil blockbuster.

Anwar, an Indonesian, said the tenant of the “slaughterhouse”, also a Myanmar, wore sunglasses most of the time.

“He has long hair and would sometimes dress up like Indian actor Rajinikanth, who plays the main character in the movie,” he said outside his house in Kampung Pisang, Machang Bubok, yesterday.

However, Anwar, who has been living in the area for eight years, said he did not know the man nor his occupation.

“He kept mostly to himself. He only moved into the house with a woman, who could be his wife, recently,” said the 41-year-old.

“He’s always dressed neatly and is also quite courteous. He would smile at me and my friends whenever he walks by but never speaks to us,” he said.

Murderers challenging our authority, Penang cops say

Published: December 6, 2014 06:54 AM

BUKIT MERTAJAM, Dec 6 ― Penang police see the discovery of mutilated body parts of Myanmar nationals in bags near a police station and the coffeeshop of a policeman’s wife as a challenge to their authority.

State police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said police were unfazed by the incidents over the last two weeks and their investigations had made progress.

“It is a very clear indication that they are challenging us. (But) let it be known that there is no let-up in our investigations into these murders and we have managed to thwart them with the arrest of 17 suspects,” he said.

“All of them are Myanmar nationals who we believed were involved in the murder of 18 people. Initial investigations revealed they entered the country illegally. We are looking into that and need more time to confirm other details.”

The latest two suspects were arrested on the island on Thursday night.

On Nov 24, a decapitated head in a black plastic bag was found on the five-foot way of the coffeeshop at Lorong Impian Ria 5, Taman Impian Ria in Alma and on Dec 1, another decapitated head and the hands of a man were found in a black plastic bag about 50m from the Machang Bubuk police station.

Police had earlier denied that the murders of Myanmar nationals in Penang over the past 11 months were because of communal clashes.

On Thursday, however, Abdul Rahim said: “We can tell from the way the victims died … it was revenge they brought here from their country. The assailants did not use firearms in their killings. They used machetes to chop their victims into pieces.”

BUKIT MERTAJAM, Dec 6 ― The wife of the landlord of Kampung Pisang in Cherok To’kun could never have imagined the horror that could one day take place in one of her houses when she rented it out to a Myanmar national some four months ago.

Identifying herself as Rohaizad, 54, she told Malay Mail that the Myanmar national in his 40s and another man in his 30s, also from Myanmar, had rented two houses at the same time.

The elder Myanmar national would turn out to be the prime suspect in the gruesome murder of Myanmar nationals in Penang and he carried out his monstrous deeds in his rented house, No. 575G.

Police believe at least two people were brutally murdered and chopped up by the man, who is said to be an odd-job worker.

“They looked so innocent,” Rohaizad recalled. “We are shocked to find out about the murders.”

Cops find Myanmar ‘slaughterhouse’ in Bukit Mertajam


The rented house at Kampung Pisang, Machang Bubok in Bukit Mertajam, where the murders are believed to have taken place.

BUKIT MERTAJAM: It looks like any ordinary low-cost, single-storey house. But this little house in Machang Bubuk here has a horror story to tell. It is where Myanmar nationals were murdered and dismembered in brutal revenge killings.

Police have raided the house at Kampung Pisang, in a wooded area off the main road and have now sealed it off.

They found bloodstains in the house, although the murderers had given it a wash and had it repainted.

The killers had also returned the house key to the unsuspecting owner.

Penang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the last two murders were believed to have taken place at the house, which was empty.

SDCP Abdul Rahim said the murder suspects were also believed to have rented another house six doors away.

They stayed there and brought their victims to the other house where they killed and dismembered them.
