Upon questioning, the victim's 52-year-old son admitted to murdering his father and brought the police to where he hid his father's head and body parts
Perak Crime Investigation Department head Yahya Abdul Rahman revealed that You Su Kim's head, hands, and legs were found buried in a hole at the back of their house, while the rest of his remains were discovered in a five-foot sewage tank.
Police later found a 0.6-metre machete used to cut up the victim's body in one of the rooms.
