Bandar Seri Begawan - The Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) yesterday confirmed that the body of a woman found under a layer of cement in the compound of a private house in Salambigar was Voon Su Ching, who was reported missing since February 13, 2013.
According to the Royal Brunei Police Force, a post-mortem has been conducted but the cause of death is still under investigation.
Police have not ruled out foul play and are currently continuing their investigation by collecting more evidence.
Voon Su Ching, aged 39, held a Malaysian passport and was reported missing by her husband after she went out at 11am and didn't return home.
Recalling the day when she went missing, Voon's husband said, "It was my son's birthday and she went out to buy a cake for him around 11 in the morning and never returned.
"I tried to call my wife many times but I couldn't reach her. In the night, I contacted the police to look for my missing wife.
"My wife would never leave us because she was a loving wife and mother. She loved our 11-year-old boy," he added
On Monday, the Royal Brunei Police Force found her body at a private home in Salambigar. The house belongs to Voon's friend.
During the Chinese New Year, her friend who left the country for the festivities, had asked Voon to drop by to keep an eye on the house when she was not around.
The friend who came back on Sunday found something odd at her house with a fresh layer of cement inside the compound. However, she wasn't suspicious of anything until Monday when she found out that Voon had been missing for days.
The husband of Voon, who wished to remain anonymous, also said that there was a foul smell coming out of the area where a fresh layer of cement was found and infested with flies.
