A man has been arrested in connection with Nurin’s murder

Police arrested a man on Saturday night in connection with Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s murder. The arrest was made in Jalan Chow Kit in Kuala Lumpur.

The Star has the story here:

In another development Bernama reported that a security guard whose features match a photofit of a child abductor was arrested at an abandoned building in Jalan Tun Razak here today.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief SAC II Ku Chin Wah who confirmed the arrest when contacted has asked the public not to make any speculation.

He said the arrest was made as a normal procedure after police acted on a report or information.

"Police will verify the veracity of the report and find the evidence before taking further action. It is part of `Ops Sunti' launched by Bukit Aman in October last year," he said.

The man who has been a security guard at the building for the past one year was picked up by police and then taken back to the building at noon.

The suspect was clad in a black T-shirt and handcuffed while his head was covered with a piece of cloth. He is said to have three sons.

A forensic team was also seen at the building.

Police took the man out of the building after one and a half hours later.

multitimid has a point there but lets hope very much this was the culprit responsible for Nurin's death.

Apology, earlier comment has a faulty link, repost below.
There appears to be some confusion in linking the men arrested with Nurin’s murder suspect. Police based it on the close resemblance of the arrested with the Photofit suspect issued for Sharlinie. But when 5 Child victims were taken to the hideout, none could recall being there before. So the Police was on a wild goose chase diverting attention from the tremendous pressure generated by the missing Sharlinie.

Kak Tok,
I hope it's not another red herring.Let's hope Sharlinie is still safe.

I hate to say this, but I have a deep suspicion, it may not be the work of a single person, a psychopath.

I am now looking at it from different angle, child pornography or ritual killing, should not be ruled out.

It is not easy to nap a child off a street using a motorbike or as a pedestrian without bystanders witnessing it. It would be easier if a car is available.For all we know, it could be a gentleman with a tie or a well-dressed lady, or both.

The police must look at every possible angle and not only in the hovel and lower strata of society.

hantu laut,

You are right!

The two suspects arrested last weekend in Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s murder have been released today (Wednesday, Jan 16).

Police say they were unconnected to her murder.

I agree with you. The police should not discount anything and look at every possible angle otherwise we might be going after the wrong person/s, as has been the case.
