Now cops are searching for two females caught on CCTV – and one of them wore a sweatshirt with ‘LOL’ (laugh out loud) emblazoned across the front.
There was speculation Kim Jong-nam was targeted on the orders of his younger brother, the North Korean dictator.
Malaysian police say the 45-year-old was ambushed while waiting for a flight to Macau.
Kim told medical workers that he’d been sprayed with a chemical, which brings to mind previous attacks with poison-tipped pens linked to North Korean assassins.
The assailant reportedly fled the scene in a taxi immediately after the attack.
It is reported that a US government source said America strongly believes North Korean agents carried out the killing.

Official of the Malaysian police Fadzil Ahmat confirmed for Malaysian news agency Bernama that the victim was Kim Jong-nam.
He was using a passport on a different name at the time.
Ahmat said: “While waiting for the flight, a woman came from behind and covered his face with a cloth laced with a liquid.
“Following this, the man was seen struggling for help and managed to obtain the assistance of a KLIA [Kuala Lumpur International Airport] receptionist as his eyes suffered burns as a result of the liquid.
“Moments later, he was sent to the Putrajaya Hospital where he was confirmed dead.”
Selangor police chief Datuk Abdul Samah Mat added: “Jong-nam experienced eye irritation then sought assistance at the airport before being sent to Putrajaya Hospital and was pronounced dead on the way.”
