According to the report, it was possible to find the dead bodies piled up in the storage room of the house due to screams believed to have been caused by a fight. One of them was found naked.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Alauddin Abdul Majid said police received a call from members of the public about a fight at a house in a four-storey apartment complex at around 11pm last night.
Then the police Mobile Patrol Vehicle (MPV) team reached the house on the second floor and found the bodies of the three.
