Kha Man, 12, will remain lost. They found her body on a rock in the Kampar river. They also found her bicycle a few km away, in Gopeng town. The cops have classified the case as "sudden death". Which means they are not sure what happened or are afraid to commit themselves. After Nurin's case, that is both understandable and pathetic.
Here's the comment I left with Msiaman, who had started a blog to help find the 12-year old."i don't know if i'm more angry or more sad but how i feel is not important. what's important is to get to the bottom of kha man's end.I have received (and published) comments alerting us about three other cases of rape and violent deaths involving kids. I have passed the info to friends in the mainstream media to help verify and highlight them.
"i hope the cops are up to the task and don't try to sweep anything under their dirty carpet. it gets dirtier by the day, and it stinks too.
"with their dismal showing in trying to find nurin's killer/killlers, i have little confidence in the police in gopeng being able to get those responsible for kha man's death, if foul play was indeed involved.
"i agree with blogger Tembam (who came to my blog) that the least the police must first ensure that kha man's privacy in death be guarded and respected. in nurin's case, they failed to even do that.
"my condolences to kha man's family. god bless her soul."
