SIBU, May 26: An Indonesian man was found dead in his rented room on the 2nd floor of a shophouse in Jalan Lebuh Tinggi on Monday evening.
The deceased 48-year-old man was found by his landlord at about 3.30pm when he went to collect the monthly rent from him.
According to Sibu District Police Chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit initial investigations showed that there were no marks of a struggle on his body and his belongings remain intact.
ACP Stanley said an examination by doctors at Sibu Hospital also revealed that there were no injuries to the body.
“We believe that the victim had died 10 hours before he was found dead by the landlord,” he added.
He said that the police had already informed the Indonesian consulate in the state to contact the victim’s next of kin for further action.—DayakDaily
