An American national, Grace Wei Huang (49) has been found dead on Bingin Beach, Pecatu on Wednesday morning (24/2). The Head of South Kuta Police Department, Kompol Yusak Agustinus Sooai said that the body was found by a group of local fishermen that morning.
“A group of local people found the body on the sand at the bottom of Bingin Beach cliff, they thought it was a doll at first, but when they came closer they realized that it was a human body,” Kompol Yusak said on Thursday (25/2).
Yusak explained that Grace was originally from California, U.S. and been staying in a villa called Le Cliff, Labuansait Pecatu.
“She was wearing a red dress when the body was found yesterday morning at 6:30 am by the people who were fishing in that location,” Kompol Yusak added.
Upon discovering the body, one of the fishermen decided to call his parents to tell them what they had just found. The concerned parents immediately called officials from the village and Badung Balawista.
A few minutes later, officers from Badung Regional Disaster Management (BPBD) arrived at the location to retrieve the body from the bottom of the cliff. Officers were unable to identify the body as there was no ID.
“After collecting information from nearby residents, we finally found her identity. But now we’re still investigating the cause of the incident, for now, we’re assuming that she had fallen from the cliff while walking,” Kompol Yusak concluded.
