JOHOR BAHARU, Jan 1 (Bernama) -- A 64-year-old transvestite was found dead in a room of a three-storey shop lot in Jalan Wong Ah Fook, near the city centre here this Friday's morning with multiple stab wounds.
Johor Baharu Selatan police chief ACP Zainuddin Yaacob said the transvestite, only known as Wong, who lived on the second floor of the shop lot was found dead at about 7.15am.
"Wong had stab wounds in the right side of the stomach and left side of the chest plus bruises in the right hand," said Zainuddin when contacted.
