Malaysia Will Probe Alleged Cover-up in Discovery of Mass Graves …

Malaysia will investigate allegations of a police cover-up in the 2015 discovery of mass graves that held corpses of scores of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar and Bangladeshi migrants at human-trafficking camps in the jungle, a senior government official said Thursday.

Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamad spoke to BenarNews, an RFA-affiliated online news service, after a local newspaper, the New Straits Times (NST), published an exposé alleging that Malaysian authorities had known about the graves and camps close to Wang Kelian, a town near the Thai border in the northern state of Perlis, months before police publicly revealed the grim discovery.

“The case on Wang Kelian has never been closed,” Nur Jazlan told BenarNews. “It is still ongoing. And what has been reported by New Straits Times will definitely be taken into account.”

When NST broke the story a day earlier, its reporters questioned his boss, Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad

Cold case troubles former Whitehall resident

“Out here, the only one to see what you’ve done is God.”

That’s how Randy Patrick, a retired detective, describes the isolation of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, a sparsely populated expanse of farmland and swamps west of Norfolk.

Patrick, 60, whose mother lives in Whitehall and whose former stepfather was a Whitehall police chief in the 1960s, investigated myriad cases during his 21-year career, but none has lodged in the recesses of his mind as deeply as an unsolved murder 13 years ago.

That 2004 murder is the subject of an episode of “The Killing Fields,” a Discovery Channel original series in its third season.

“Killing Fields: Murder Isle” will premiere at 9 p.m. Jan. 4 on Discovery.

The episode centers on the slaying of 28-year-old Carrie Singer, whose body was found beaten and partially clothed in a field in April 2004.
