There is a rumor circulating in Sungai Petani, Kedah on a very famous murder case. In early 2006, a horrific crime shocked the sleepy town of Sungai Petani. Miss Chee Gaik Yap, age 25, was out jogging in Kelab Cinta Sayang when she was abducted by several men in a black Naza Ria MPV.
She was hit in the head, raped and killed by having her throat slit. Police arrested a whole bunch of people for DNA testing including some car repair men and club workers. However, all was freed due to lack of evidence. It is nearly a year and half since that brutal crime and yet the killer is still at large.
According to police investigations, she was believed to have been trailed by her assailants. This was no random crime of opportunity. At the time of her murder, she was together with a Chinese national by the name of Luo Zhenqinq. The two met at University Utara Malaysia.
There was another person who tried to woo her but failed. This man is well as known as a local bad hat. It is believed that he took it badly and was in a rage. Not one to give up on what he wants, he tried harder to win her but was rebuffed many times. This drove the man into a murderous rage.
So, according to the rumors, this man and his buddies tailed, abducted, raped and murdered her in the most brutal fashion. Below is a picture of several of the club workers who were caught but subsequently released:
The man and his buddies were Chinese. Now, this rumor has been circulating for a year even among police personnel, so why haven't they picked this man up for questioning at the very least? That is because this man's father is known as a powerful godfather in politics and secret societies in Kedah.
This VIP godfather is protected by many bodyguards and well known for his arrogance. He has forged close ties to powerful MCA politicians (some of whom are also under the cloud of secret societies), has links to large corporations that monopolize Northern Malaysian contracts and owns clubs, restaurants, hotels and golf courses. He is not a man to be trifled with especially in his stronghold.
The VIP godfather used all the power at his disposal, political and criminal, to cover up his son's crime. And that is why the killer remains free to this day. The police do not dare to touch this godfather. Even now, the people of Kedah whisper this tale fearfully looking around to see if anyone else is hearing even though it is empty like a desert. One thing the kopitiam can tell for sure is that everybody is damn scared of this godfather.
