KUALA LUMPUR: The family of missing contractor Wong Fook Onn, who was found murdered on Sunday, is upset with police investigations into the case.
Wong had been missing since March 14 and his family began a search for him after lodging a police report in Subang Jaya the following day.
“We did not hear anything from the police for a few days, so I decided to do my own investigation last Friday,” Wong’s father Kim Sai told a press conference at Wisma MCA here yesterday.
“I used a spare remote control we had for my son’s blue Proton Saga that he drove to locate the missing car,” he said.
“I was driving around Taman Medan, off Old Klang Road, and by pressing the remote control found the car after its alarm went off.”
The car was found just before midnight, but he did not touch the vehicle as it was a police case.
“However, when I called the police officer assigned to my son’s case, he told me to drive the car home,” he said.
MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong, who held the press conference, said that Kim Sai refused, and spent the night by the car to ensure the evidence was untouched.
“How could he drive his son’s car home when this was a case under investigation? The police should have done a better job,” Chong said.
A police unit came at noon the next day to inspect the car and tow it away.
On Sunday, the family was alerted by a Sin Chew Daily reporter that a body was found in an abandoned house near the car. The description of the body matched that of Wong.
Kim Sai said the last person who was with Wong is believed to be a foreign worker hired for some construction work. The family could not trace the worker.
Yesterday, the family collected Wong’s remains from the Universiti Hospital mortuary.
