According to Wa (left in photo), the liquids had seeped through the door's partition to the corridor leading to the toilet and the kitchen. Cin Hong's family members expressed surprise that his three housemates were not aware of Cin Hong's death for three days, until the night of May 28 when his housemate called the police and reported the death. The police took Cin Hong’s mobile phone as identification because they claimed his wallet could not be found in the room, said Wa. "But when we went to the house, we found my son's wallet lying on his table, and if there was cash inside, it was all gone," he added.
The family members also said that Cin Hong was a cheerful, smart and optimistic person, and had neither financial difficulties nor personal problems. Although he was a high-scoring student, elder brother Gan Chin Kuan said Cin Hong was not close to his housemates and often stayed in his room after returning from classes at the university. Chin Kuan also argued that it was impossible for his brother to commit suicide because he had often condemned such act when he read about them in the newspapers. The family will have to wait up to three months before the complete postmortem report is released.
DAP legislator Lim has urged Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar to undertake a thorough investigation on Cin Hong's death.
