Imagine being failed by humanity so dreadfully it took a toll on your life that even after years or decades passed, the justice you deserve has yet to be served. Malaysia, apart from its magnificent sandy beaches, palette-satisfying local delicacies, colorful heterogeneity, and many other captivating attributes, similar to many other nations of the globe, surely holds countless dark tales of devilry left unexplained till the present day.
Today we bring back some atrocious murder cases predominating local and international (some) headlines in which concrete evidence is still unobtainable; mysteries that have been leaving the entire nation puzzled.
Children have deemed the future pillars of society thus our utmost responsibility to protect their wellbeing. Humanity continued to fail us nevertheless. An 8-year-old girl Nurin Jazlin Binti Jazimin was reported missing on 20 August 2007 after venturing out from home in Wangsa Maju all by herself to purchase some hair clips. While being informed of her leave, her mother was at that time, busy entertaining guests thus not alert enough to ensure her being accompanied by her younger sister.
The night market she intended to approach was located merely 100m away from their apartment. Upon disappearance, her petrified parents lodged a report followed by a search that was conducted in the succeeding weeks by multiple bodies which comprise media agencies and benevolent NGOs.
Few weeks later on 17 September 2007, a large black and blue duffle bag was sighted in a premise situated in Petaling Jaya. Horror-stricken passer-by discovered a child’s naked body inside the bag, which was suspected to be Nurin’s.
The corpse’s original facial features were terribly ruined by the trauma, causing the victim’s parents to deny her very identity. They remained optimistic till a DNA test confirmed the body as Nurin’s.
Till the present day, the culprit has yet to be arrested and we genuinely hope for justice to be served.
