A heartbreaking video has been making its rounds on social media. Like the scene of a movie, a toddler was seen crying next to her mother, who appeared lifeless in an alley.
Unfortunately, police confirmed that the video was of a real murder case.
Tawau Police confirmed that the incident happened last night in Kampung Titingan or formerly known as Kampung Ice Box. Kampung Ice Box is believed to be a place with high gangsterism and crime cases.
In the video, shared by Kosmo, a family member was seen holding back tears after seeing the victim lifeless.
The victim was found dead next to her crying toddler in a dark alley in the Sabah village.
According to Bernama, Tawau district deputy police chief Supt Champin Piuh said they received a report about the incident at 7.30 pm.
The woman, a foreigner, believed to be in her 30s, had her throat slit with a sharp object. The woman and her one-year-old daughter were on their way to her sister’s house nearby to get vegetables.
“When they reached a dark alley, the victim was believed to have been robbed because her necklace and earrings were missing,” Supt Champin Piuh told reporters last night.
The police are working on tracking down the suspect and the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
Those with information related to this incident can reach the Tawau IPD operations room to assist in the investigation.
