Anyone recognise these tattoo markings?

The decomposed body of a woman was found entangled around a water pump structure at the Pagalan river near Melalap in Tenom early yesterday.

Acting district police chief ASP Ahmad Razali Shaari said Tenom police rushed to the scene after receiving a call from a plantation worker alerting them to the gruesome discovery about 7am.

“The naked body was found entangled around a water pump structure that belonged to the plantation company.

“Half her body had decomposed, and no identification documents were found on her. The only form of identification were the tattoos on both her arms and legs.

“We believe that she was in her 20s or 30s,” he said.

Ahmad Razali added that so far, Tenom police have not received any missing persons report that could point to the possible identity of the deceased.

The body was recovered from the river with the help of the Fire and Rescue Department before being sent to Hospital Tenom for a post-mortem.

Anyone with missing female family members in the areas of Tenom or Keningau are advised to present themselves at the Tenom police headquarters.
