Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan received an anonymous phone call threatening his life three months before his murder.

  • Nazrin lodged a police report over death threat
  • When the call was traced to a close relative, Nazrin withdrew the report
  • Second post-mortem report still not ready
  • Family at first denied they had a maid
  • Police now looking for maid who disappeared after Nazrin’s death
  • Maid could be in Malaysia illegally as no record of her entry into or exit from the country

Nazrin took the death threat seriously and lodged a report with the police.

The police later traced the phone call to a close relative.

Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor confirmed that there was a report on the threat and an investigation revealed that the phone call was made by his close relative.

“We have investigated this matter but it’s not part of the murder investigation at this moment.

“Nazrin had also withdrawn the report,” he said in a press conference today.

Commenting on the second post-mortem report on Nazrin, Mazlan said he was still waiting for the results which are being completed by the medical officer of Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), after the second post-mortem was conducted on Oct 8.

“The report might take a long time to complete and we don’t want to rush or disturb their work. Let them refine the report and make it perfect,” he said.

On Oct 8, Nazrin’s body was exhumed from the Kota Damansara Muslim Cemetery in Seksyen 9 for a second post-mortem after the Court of Appeal dismissed the application by Nazrin’s widow Samirah Muzaffar to postpone it.

Nazrin, 45, died in a fire at his double-storey house on June 14. He was found with 30% burns on his body.

Police reclassified the case as murder following a forensic investigation by the Fire and Rescue Department.

Nazrin’s wife, her former husband, her two teenage sons as well as her sister and her sister’s husband were remanded earlier to assist investigations into the case, but were later released.

Police are now looking for an Indonesian domestic worker who was employed at Nazrin’s home to help in the investigation into his murder.

Investigators only found out about the maid’s existence after they arrested several of Nazrin’s family members.

“At the initial point of the investigation, we had asked the family if they had a maid. They denied it,” a police source was quoted as saying.

The maid could be in Malaysia illegally as the Immigration Department has no record of her entry or exit.
