IN REMEMBRANCE of Chin Mei Fong, who was tragically murdered two weeks ago, around 60 friends and family members gathered yesterday morning at Bukit Shahbandar for a nine-hill hike.
Flowers and messages from well-wishers could be seen at the area where the heinous crime took place.
Seeking justice, Mei Fong’s sister Debbie said, “We are appealing to anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward and help the police in their investigation.”
She conveyed her gratitude to witnesses who have already come forward and helped police fit together a photo fit of the two “persons of interest” they are currently looking for.
Debbie said copies of the photo fit would be put up at various public places such as hospitals and bus stops.
She also suggested that authorities place CCTVs at entrances of recreational parks to avoid similar incidents in the future.
A small police station and a logbook for registration could also be placed at the entrance of the park, she added.
Debbie described her sister as an avid hiker and a very fit person.
“Mei Fong would even skip lunch just to go to the gym.” she said, adding her sister had been planning on doing her Masters.
Mei Fong’s best friend and longtime colleague Liley Beritin remembered Mei Fong as a kind, lovely and loyal friend.
With a friendship spanning over 10 years, she expressed that “there is only one Mei Fong, no one can replace her. Losing her is like having a hole in my heart”.
She said Mei Fong had a deep passion for Hello Kitty and that her wish was to fly in a Hello Kitty airplane.
On Friday afternoon, the police gave a description of the two men who are believed to be foreigners.
They are aged between 30 and 40 and measure around 5’5 to 5’7 in height.
Both men, who are of slim build, have short, black hair and very dark skin tone.
Those with information on the whereabouts of the duo can contact Assistant Superintendent Police (ASP) Pg Hj Abu Naba’a bin Pg Hj Yusof at 2322004, 2322005 or 2322006; hotline 993 or visit the nearest police station.
