Family says murder suspect not woman’s boyfriend
PETALING JAYA: The family of a woman who was murdered by a man claiming to be her boyfriend has denied she was in any sort of relationship with the suspect.
D. Tharani’s uncle – who only wished to be known as Manimaran, said his niece had been trying to avoid the suspect as he may have been stalking her at their workplace.
Manimaran said Tharani must have made up a story about her getting married to someone to ward off the suspect’s advances.
“She must have made up the story of her getting married to someone…as far as we know marriage was the last thing on her mind.
“In fact the word marriage itself is enough to put her off.”
Manimaran, who is from Ara Damansara, said the family had no idea of the man’s existence and none of them had met him prior to yesterday.
“If indeed Tharani and the boy were in a relationship, surely she would have shared the news with her sisters at the very least.
“I even asked my nephew, who she shares everything with, but he too said that he doesn’t know anything about her relationship with this man.
“As far as we know, the suspect is just a colleague from the new work place she joined,” he said when met outside the UMMC mortuary today.
Suspect who drove body to police station remanded for seven days
PETALING JAYA: The man who allegedly murdered D. Tharani and drove her body to the police station before surrendering has been remanded for a week.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the 37-year-old suspect was brought to the Petaling Jaya magistrate’s court on Tuesday morning (Feb 6).
“We managed to obtain a remand for seven days. We will investigate the case thoroughly,” he said when contacted.
On the motive behind the murder, ACP Mohd Zani said it might have been due to a rejected marriage proposal.
“The victim refused to marry the suspect and wanted to marry someone else,” he said.
He added that police were still waiting on the post-mortem report to know the cause of death.
It was reported that the suspect allegedly killed his 37-year-old lover in her car and then drove to the Damansara police station to surrender – with the body still in the front seat.
The man, said to be a co-worker, confessed his crime to the stunned policemen.
Police went out to check the car, which was parked at the main entrance, and found the bloodied body in the front passenger seat.
They also found a sharp object in the car, which was believed to be the murder weapon.
