My condolences to the grieving family :(

Eight year old Nurul Jazlin Jazimin went missing on August 20, 2007 after going to a night market near her house in the Wangsa Maju. She was last seen being dragged into a white van, and the police are enhancing footage caught on cctv installed nearby.

On the morning of September 17, 2007, a gym bag was left in front of a shop lot in PJS 1/48. It contained an unidentified child’s naked body stuffed in a foetal position.

At that time, Nurul Jazlin’s parents denied that the child was their own missing one.

My source is from crime reporters on the beat (or at the forensic labs, to be specific). More updates as soon as various news agencies and papers publish them.
