‘More than one involved in murder of Utar student’
Lee Shi-Ian and Alang Bendahara;
Selangor police chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said they were looking for several people who were last seen in the vicinity of the neighbourhood to help in investigations. "The victim’s boyfriend, a man in his 40s, has come forward to facilitate investigations and his statement has been recorded. "The boyfriend informed us that he had been visiting Tang during the weekends. "They had been going out together not long after Tang completed her Sijil Pelajaran
"Tang’s family members have also given their statements and investigations are on-going to locate her missing silver Toyota Vios," he said. The Toyota Vios, with the registration number AFT 2267, was a gift from Tang’s parents and the public are urged to contact the police if they see the car.
Apart from the car, Tang’s mobile phone, laptop and purse are also missing. Tang, who is from Taman Wang, Menglembu, in Perak, was a business studies (business administration) student. Police do not rule out the possibility that Tang, who had only stayed at the house for a month, had been secretly observed by her assailants before they struck early Thursday.
Police are also seeking a couple who frequently visited Tang and spent the night during these visits. It is believed they could shed some light on the investigation. Checks revealed that Tang had attended classes over the past few days prior to the attack.
On Thursday, Tang’s body, clad only in a T-shirt, was found in her bedroom by olicemen who responded to a call by her neighbour. The neighbour, in his 50s, was strolling along the back alley of the house about on Thursday when he suspected that someone had broken into the house. The bottom part of the door grille was prised open and several window panes had been removed. The window grille had also been prised opened.
When the police arrived, they found the front gate and door unlocked. They entered the house to check and found Tang’s body. Tang was found lying sideways on a bed in the master bedroom on the top floor. Her hands were tied behind her back and there was a pillow case around her neck. There were no signs of struggle in the room and the front door lock was intact. Several fingerprints were also lifted from the scene.

Straight-A student found dead, sodomised
By RAHMAN DAROS, MM
TIED up, strangled and sodomised.
That was the gruesome fate of a 20-year-old female Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman undergraduate, who was found dead in her rented home in Jalan Putera 4/1, Bandar Mahkota Cheras, yesterday. The body of Tang Lai Meng, an A-list student from Menglembu, Perak, was found in the master bedroom of the double-storey terrace house by police. Clad only in a T-shirt, Tang was found lying on her side, her arms tied to her back with a black T-shirt. Her bra and panties were found near the body. Police had gone to check on the house following a phone call by a neighbour at , claiming that Tang’s home could have been broken into as the front door and gate were wide open.
Kajang police chief Assistant Commissioner Rosli Mohd Nizam said the victim is believed to have been sodomised.
“There were semen stains on her anus but there were no wounds or bruises on the other parts of her body. There were also reddish marks on her arms,” he said. Investigators believe that the victim probably knew her assailant as the room did not appear to have been ransacked. “There was a pillowcase around her neck and we also found evidence of her being strangled. However, there was no blood around her,” said Rosli. Tang, a second year student in the Diploma in Business Administration programme at the Bandar Sg Long campus, was a straight-A student. Police found her September 2005 examination results, which showed that she had scored a CGPA of 4.0.
Her student pass was found next to the bed. Her cell phone, MyKad, laptop and cash, however, were missing. Police have recovered several fingerprints from the house. Although there were no signs of forced entry into her room, there were signs of a break-in at the grille at the back of the house. All clues point to a mysterious man, whom neighbours claim was a frequent visitor to the house. The man, described by neighbours as being in his 40s, drives a silver Proton Waja and regularly spent the night at Tang’s house.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that they may have been romantically involved. A 66-year-old neighbour, who only wished to be identified as Lim, was the fi rst to alert police when he saw Tang’s front door and gate wide open.
“I thought it was a robbery as several houses here had been broken into,” said the retiree.
“Later, when I heard about the murder, there is no one else I can think of except for this man. His silver Proton Waja was here most of the time. Sometimes at , , anytime. “He frequently spent nights here because I’d see his car the following morning when I take my regular walk,” he said, describing the man as “broad shouldered” and “a little bit fat”. Lim also gave the vehicle’s registration number to police.
Another neighbour, M. Meena, said she last saw the man at 7 last night.
“Sometimes, the girl would bring her friends over as well. But most of the time, the man was at the house,” said the 44- year-old widow. She added that the victim moved in three months ago. The man is being sought by police to help in investigations. It is learnt that Tang’s Toyota Vios, is also missing. The house, which the victim had rented on her own, was sparsely furnished. It only had a sofa, coffee table, wardrobe and bed.
The two other rooms upstairs were unoccupied. The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder. Tang’s body was sent to

According to a neighbour, M.Meena, 44, who lives opposite Tang's house, the student who had never mingled or spoken to them moved into the house about three months ago. She said a middle-aged man who drove a silver Proton Waja often turned up to fetch the victim from the house. The housewife said there was also a couple whom she had seen putting up in the house but was unsure if they were tenants of the house.
