The decomposed body of a man with his legs tied with a rope was found in a bush at the road junction to Kampung Tawayari in Ulu Segama.
District police chief Superintendent Kamis Darning said a villager who stumbled upon the body about 2.30pm on Wednesday last week, informed the police station about the grisly discovery.
He said a police team who went to the place found the body of a man lying on the ground with his face down.
"No injuries were found on the semi-decomposed body except that the man's legs were tied with a nylon rope," said Kamis, adding the identity of the man had yet to be identified as no document was found on the body.
He said police were still investigating the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code and were not ruling out the victim who could be in his 30s, was murdered. Police are appealing to the public whose family member is reported missing to come and identify the body at the mortuary of the district hospital."Those who may have any information of the case are advised to contact the district police station to assist in the police investigations," he
