KUALA LUMPUR: Police yesterday announced that they have solved the murders of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said they were wrapping up investigations before submitting the case to the Attorney-General's Chambers.
Police believe they have built a strong case against the two lawyer brothers and six others over the murder of cosmetics millionaire Sosilawati Lawiya and three others.
Evidence gathering efforts have stopped for the moment at the farm and river but police are still guarding the area, said CID Director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin on Friday.
It was reported that Sosilawati and the three went missing on August 30 after they went to meet the lawyers in Banting over a land deal. Investigations later revealed that the four were murdered before their bodies were burnt to ashes which were then scattered in rivers and streams in the area. The four were allegedly murdered in a poultry farm in Sungai Gadung, near Tanjung Sepat, here, which was owned by the Datuk.
To date, police have arrested eight suspects, including two lawyer brothers and two women. The brothers, aged 41 and 38, are long-time residents of Taman Cempaka in Banting
