Police in Ho Chi Minh City are investigating the death of a Malaysian man whose body was found inside a hotel room in the backpacker district, with multiple cut wounds.
Employees of the hotel on Bui Vien Street broke the door and found the body on the bed at around 7 p.m. after the man did not answer them.
There were many cuts on his head and shoulders. Bloodstains were found on the floor.
Initial investigation found the 33-year-old victim checked into the room two days earlier with another Malaysian man of 32, whose whereabouts remain unknown.
Police are looking for the roommate, saying he may be directly linked to the death.
