An elderly woman was found dead with her hands and legs bound together at her home on Jalan Seroja in Port Klang, Selangor yesterday.
The body of Lim Peck Lan, aged 65, was discovered at 6.30pm by her sister, who went to the house after she failed to contact the woman hours earlier.
Police believed the victim may had been robbed as her bedroom had been ransacked and that the intruder had entered the house through an unlock door before tying up the victim using black PVC tape.
According to forensics, Lim died six hours earlier from suffocation after being left lying face down on her bed by the suspect.
It is understood that she was single and lived alone.
The body was taken to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital for post mortem.
