Teen held to help probe into death of 14-year-old girl

A Fifth Former has been detained to facilitate investigations into the death of 14-year-old Aimi Hamizah Mohamad, who was found near a landfill in Kg Solok Gaung in Ayer Molek here.

The 17-year-old was picked up at his home at about 3.30pm yesterday.

State deputy CID chief Supt P.R. Gunarajan said Aimi was last seen riding pillion on a motorcycle with a man at 9pm on Monday.

“We are still waiting for the post-mortem report to determine whether she was sexually assaulted,” he said yesterday.

Supt Gunarajan added that the victim was supposed to return to her home in Taman Desa Molek after religious class at 9pm but failed to turn up.

Her father lodged a report at the Tiang Dua police station the next day.

He said Aimi Hamizah's decomposed body was found by youths playing soccer near the landfill on Wednesday evening.

The victim's father, Mohamad Sahak, 58, said Aimi Hamizah left for religious class at her neighbour's house at about 7pm on that day.

“I suspected something amiss when she failed to return home by 9pm,” he said.

“The teacher said Aimi Hamizah attended class but it had ended early that day.”

Mohamad added that he and a few neighbours went looking for her but failed to locate Aimi Hamizah.

The landfill is located about 5km from his home.

“She still had on her jewellery,'' he said, adding that she was his only daughter and the youngest of three children.
