23 November 2013 Granny murdered in sundry shop in Batu Pahat

The following story may be old news, but since it contained news about BP it interests me....and I am also impressed by her family members who kneel when her body was being removed by police....
She is revered and much respected by her loved ones, but the robbers have no regard for life in general and her life in particular and killed her in 7.4 minutes, a life lived for 74 years.

BATU PAHAT: A 74-year-old grandmother was robbed and murdered in her sundry shop at Jalan Jelawat in Taman Banang here yesterday.
The body of Lau Pow Ling was discovered at around 9am by her two sons after they failed to contact her.
District police chief Asst Comm Din Ahmad said the family became concerned after their calls went unanswered since 6.30am.
The two sons broke into the locked premises and found Lau lying in a pool of blood.
ACP Din said that there was a hole in the ceiling and the counter in the shop was ransacked.
He said police were investigating and suspected that robbery was the motive for the brutal killing.
It is learnt that the victim was living alone in the shop after the death of her husband.
She devoted her life to work, but scums have scant regard for the dedication of hard work or a fulfilling life..
This is the first time I have seen relatives kneeling in respect of a dead loved one
I am filled with humility and touched beyond words.
