This was my lucky day. I didn,t expect to win the race. I only registered the race on 3.30pm today with my wife and sister and hoping to get a medal for all of us. There were not many runners took part in this race. The total number of medals to be given is more than the total number of runners. The most happiest moment was not because I won the race but because my wife won her first even medal in road race.

Gary Leon Robert Bids Farewell To This World

We finally found Gary Leon Robert, good news ?? NO !! because that turned out to be the hardest news to accept that this best friend of mine for years had passed away. His body was found in-the-place-that-you-will-never-imagined, THE DUMPSTER !! Yes,you readers must swearing out loud, WTF, OMG, and What happenned ?? Yes, I was at the stadium's seating area and few metres away from the scene was thinking the same as you. But thats the weirdest place someone's body could ever be found there. Isn't it ? Buried deep down inside the area and covered with pile of stenchy rubbish, who can stand it for almost 24hours ?

Reached there around 1315 hours. I was kinda relieved at first to hear the news that Gary was found but still trapped in somewhere with his status still unknown. Thanks to the police's efficient sniffing dog, he was found. At the same time,its really sad to see and hear that some of his friends and relatives was crying out loud and some were praying for his safety. That had shaked my senses that something was not right.

Waited for about 30mins and some of my friends decided to head to the scene to confirm Gary's status. We crossed our fingers and hoping for the good to happen. At least, praying that he was still unconcious after being suffocated in the stench. Then came a call , the friend of mine who went down there confirmed that the person found was Gary Leon Robert but he was motionless and doesnt show any reactions. The dumpster area was barricaded with CSI tapes and steel bars. Bad aura started to emit and enshroud the clueless friends and relatives who were still awaiting confirmation on Gary's status

My legs totally gone soft and hoping that Gary is still unconcious or fell asleep. But then, after Gary's dad, Uncle Noel gone to identify the person's identity, it was indeed Gary and ya, he was already no more as in no breathing. Saw Uncle Noel came out while his relatives and church members holding his arm and they abruptly rushed to somewhere. I guess that they were heading to the nearest police station to lodge an official report claiming it was indeed Gary Leon Robert found dead on the scene.

Life is rather cruel at times right ?? He was last seen at the medic camp on one end of the field and later was found dead in the secluded dumpster area directly at the opposite of the other side while his body was filled with bruises here and there ?? Who would had imagined this ending of life ?? Its totally unbearable for him and us, the friends and family members. I bet there must be something fishy happened in this mysterious case.

Bro, I still remember clearly that You and Me must one day visit Old Trafford together. Its our Theatre of Dreams !! But then you are with your creator now

A few weird stuffs I heard and experienced today.
  1. Organizers claimed that this was the first time this kinda incident had happened after like 7-8 years of organizing.

  2. These organizers wished that they doesn't want this matter to go into media's attention. (You know who you are !!) And definitely this case gonna blow out of propotions soon !!

  3. What the hell is the Forensic Department taking their own sweet time coming to the so-called crime scene ? Body was found approx 1pm and you people only showed up 2 hours later and collected the body close to 5pm. Its almost 4 hours in between !!

The author here wrote whatever he listened and experienced throughout the day in the Shah Alam Stadium. He does not intend to defame anyone or organization mention and no modification has been done to the actual facts that were happening. The author himself had to put up all the courage left now to write this devastating ending to his best friend, Gary Leon Robert. Im so gonna miss you and your wonderful personality, my dear friend.

Deepest condolence to his family and friends.

Missing runner Gary Leon Robert found dead in a tunnel of the Shah Alam Stadium.


SHAH ALAM: The mystery of the missing Shah Alam Adidas Marathon runner who did not return home after completing his run on Sunday was answered when the police K-9 unit found his body a day later at a tunnel at the Shah Alam Stadium.

The body of 22-year-old Gary Leon Robert, a Universiti Tenaga Nasional student, was found at 1.05pm yesterday almost 24 hours after his father, Marry Robert lodged a police report at the Section 11 police station here.

Shah Alam deputy police chief Superintendent M. Chandra, when contacted, said the father had lodged a missing person's report at the police station at about 4pm on Sunday.

He said police officers spent the whole morning searching for Gary at the stadium but their search was unfruitful.

"The K-9 unit was then brought in at noon to look for the victim.

At 1.05pm, police found his body in a tunnel which was usually used by the Federal Reserve Unit during football matches.

"When he was found, the deceased was lying on his back and he was wearing a white T-shirt, orange Adidas vest, shorts and sports shoes.

"There were also cuts on his chin and lips, believed to be sustained from a fall."

Chandra said the victim had participated in the Adidas Marathon held from 6am to 10am at the Shah Alam Stadium on Sunday.

He was believed to have completed his run before he passed out.

He said after receiving treatment from paramedics, Gary was seen leaving the paramedic's treatment area.

That was the last time anyone saw him alive.

Gary's body was sent to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital for a post mortem.

Pending the outcome of the post mortem, police have classified the case as sudden death.
