Sim's body was found floating in waters near Pasir Gudang last Thursday, four days after he was reportedly kidnapped. JOHOR BARU - A Singaporean man said to have been kidnapped in Johor Baru on Nov 27 was found dead four days later, it was reported on Sunday.

Johor deputy police chief Ismail Yatim said in a statement on Sunday that Sim did not have a job but was believed to be a loanshark. He had nine criminal records in Malaysia.
