In a heartbreaking turn of events, the recent loss of Faizuri Md Akhir, a 51-year-old former factory manager, has left his family and community in shock. The four-day mystery surrounding his disappearance was finally resolved when his lifeless body was discovered in his office in Bandar Laguna Merbok.
Faizuri's two sons made the grim discovery after breaking open the office door at 7:22 PM. Abd Afham Asyraf Faizuri, 28, the second son, shared that his father was believed to have left their home in Taman Desa Aman, Guar Chempedak, for the office last Thursday morning. The family's concern grew when Faizuri failed to return home the next day.
Initially assuming he had gone to visit his grandmother in Pokok Asam, Taping, Perak, as he often did on weekends, the family became increasingly worried when he didn't send any messages about his whereabouts, and his phone remained unreachable.
Next morning, Abd Afham contacted his grandmother, only to find out that his father was not there. Despite efforts to reach out to close family members and acquaintances, no one knew Faizuri's whereabouts.
The family's worry turned into a tragic reality when Abd Afham and his younger brother, Amirul Solihin, 19, rushed to their father's office yesterday evening. They found Faizuri's car, a Hyundai Matrix, still parked beneath the office. Breaking open the rented office door, they were shocked to find him unconscious, and it is believed that he had passed away before they could inform the police.
Faizuri, who quit his managerial position at a vehicle factory in Kulim a year ago, had started his own company, teaching automotive skills to factory operators.
Kuala Muda District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Zaidy Che Hassan, reported that upon receiving information about the incident, they promptly responded. Preliminary examinations found no criminal elements. The investigation suggests Faizuri likely passed away more than 24 hours ago, and an interview with his son revealed a history of heart disease treatment.
The body has been sent for a post-mortem at Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital (HSAH), and the case has been classified as sudden death, leaving the community mourning the untimely loss of a respected individual.
