Kota Kinabalu: A man was found dead with his neck slit in front of a stall at Kg Inanam Laut, near here, on Wednesday with a suspect arrested by police

City Police Chief ACP Habibi Majinji said 40-year-old Jimboy Basal was found by his 14-year-old son while he was walking home at about 12.30am.

Habibi said police received a distress call from the youth at about 1.50am and investigators rushed to the scene.

“Prior to the discovery, the son was approached by four men including his cousin who asked about his father’s whereabouts but he just ignored them and kept heading to Suria Inanam. Upon arriving at the location, he saw his father’s body with what were believed to be slash wounds on his neck caused by a sharp object.

“The motive of the crime has yet to be identified but City Police has arrested a suspect related to the murder case and is still looking for the other three."
