Nurin Jazlin Murder; At Last A Breakthrough With Arrest Of Five Suspects
A team of police officers from the Petaling Jaya and Selangor police at about 11.30pm picked up the five aged between 27 and 33 from several locations in Section 7 in Shah Alam.
It is learnt one of the five, a man in his 30s, has a string of criminal records including sexual assault cases here and in several other states.
CID director Commissioner Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee said the arrests were made possible following information from the public.
"Two cars and five cellular phones were seized from the suspects,'' he said, adding that they were detained to assist police in their investigation into the murder of Nurin Jazlin.
The arrest of the five is the first major breakthrough police have made since Nurin Jazlin was first reported missing from her Wangsa Maju flat on Aug 20.
Police have been working tirelessly to nab the killer/s and have reopened several old cases with similar modus operandi to narrow down their suspects.
Nurin Jazlin went missing on Aug 20 after she went to a night market by herself near her house in Section 1, Wangsa Maju, in Setapak. Her body was found stuffed in a sports bag at a three-storey shop lot in Petaling Utama on Sept 17.
A post-mortem showed that she had been sexually assaulted. (The Star Update)
