He said initial investigations revealed that the skeletal remains was difficult to determine the gender, age and time of death, as the body had decayed by more than 50 per cent and had maggots infestation.

"However, the remains was later sent to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital (HSA) here for post-mortem,” he said in a statement today.

He said that based on the post-mortem report issued by HSA as at 2.30 pm, the body belonged to a woman, estimated to be over 25 years old, had died about two weeks ago and the victim also had a head injury.

He said anyone with information related to the case has been urged to come forward to the Kulai district police headquarters to assist investigations or contact the investigating officer at 016-2850204.
