What's his real occupation?

Couple held over their three sons’ deaths

KUALA LUMPUR: A couple has been detained to assist police investigations into the deaths of their three sons.
Tour guide Seah Weng Chong and his wife Kau Mei Lin, both 38, were found with their wrists slashed at their Desa Sri Puteri flat on Friday, near the bodies of their children – Siew Tong, eight, Siew Mun, 10, and Siew Cheung, 12.

A bottle of bleach and a cooking gas cylinder with a punctured tube were inside the bedroom where the bodies were found.

The couple are presently recuperating at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Cheras.

A source said police recorded statements from them yesterday.

The couple, he added, had been remanded until Dec 7.

At the hospital, Seah, who kept asking police personnel and nurses about his wife's condition, appeared calm while Kau looked tired.

According to neighbours, loan sharks had been coming to the family's home over the last few days.

Even yesterday morning, two men, believed to be debt collectors, had gone in search for Seah at the flat. They left after being told of the family's tragedy.

Kau's sister, who lived just opposite, said she heard noises from the corridor at about 2.30am on Friday.

“They sounded like they came to collect debts. They even threw stones into my sister's house and broke the windows.

“I was too scared to open the door. When I heard no response from my sister's home, I assumed that they were not home and did not do anything,” she said, adding that the men left soon after.

Seah's mother went to the mortuary at about 2.45pm yesterday to see the bodies of her grandchildren but her wish was turned down due to some documentation problems.

She said her son did not tell her of any financial difficulty.

Meanwhile, a colleague, who did not want to be named, said Seah had not received any tour guiding assignments for the last three months.

“Business at the company has been bad, so there's no job for Seah. This means his income has dropped quite a bit.
“Seah told me that he had borrowed money from loan sharks in May but I don't know how much,” he said.

He's a tour guide meh? Why are (apparently) Chinese newspapers reporting him as a bus driver? I've got no links to those sites 'cause I can't read Chinese. But I got the feedback from Chinese newspaper readers, i.e. my mom and aunts. Someone's not getting their facts right... Just dunno who.
