A 30-year-old woman was found strangled with a piece of wire at a budget hotel Jalan Peel, off Jalan Tun Razak here.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Ahmad Ibrahim said the victim’s hands were also tied behind her back with a piece of wire.
He said the hotel front officer became suspicious when the woman, who had checked in on Friday, failed to check out by 8.30pm yesterday.
He said the officer then alerted a security guard, who used a master key to open the room.
The dead woman, who did not have any identification papers on her, was fully clothed. She was found lying at the edge of the bed.
The police have classified the case as murder.
“We have yet to ascertain the motive behind the killing,” he said.
SAC Ahmad urged those who have lost a relative to contact the nearest police station.
