PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - An image found on Google Street View showing a boy and his sister getting ready to leave their house in Taman Usaha Jaya, Selangor, might seem innocent enough.

But the image, captured by Google Street View cameras in February 2014, turns chilling when one considers that the boy in the image might be the one found buried in his kitchen on Saturday.

The identity of the boy in the image, however, remains unconfirmed.

Neighbour Azizan Shafiee said that he could not tell whether the boy in the image was the one who went missing about a week before his family moved out.

"The picture is a bit dark to see. I can't recognise which boy this is because the face is blurry," said Azizan.

There have been conflicting reports over the number of siblings in the family, although a recent police statement is that there were two boys and a girl in the family.

A skeletal remains of a child, believed to be that of a boy, was found buried in the house in Kepong on Saturday.

The remains were taken to Sungai Buloh Hospital for an autopsy.

The parents in the case have been detained in Sabah.
