A 78 year old local woman has been found lifeless by a fisherman on Nusa Penida beach after allegedly taking her own life.
The Head of Klungkung Public Relation Officer, AKP I Putu Gede Ardana confirmed that the woman was found dead on Saturday morning (17/7) at around 10:00am. “The woman who has been living Batununggul Village, Nusa Penida was already dead when she was found by a 70-year-old local fisherman named Made Kelodan on the beach on Saturday morning.” AKP Ardana said on Saturday (19/9).
According to the informations from the witness, the body was found when Kelodan came to the beach to inspect his fishing boat on Saturday morning. Shortly after, he spotted something floating near his boat. He called another fisherman named Putu Sukasna to help him ensure that it was a human body. After confirming that it was a woman’s body, they immediately shouted to the by-standers to help them evacuate the body to the shore and called the police.
“After confirming that it was a dead body, our officers came and tranported the body to Gema Santi Hospital Nusa Penida.” AKP Ardana added. A 69-year-old man came to the hospital to confirm it was his wife after growing suspicious that he hadn’t seen his wife since Saturday morning.
“The man confirmed that the women was his wife. He also explained that she had been suffering with some illness prior to her death, and according to our investigation, we didn’t find any wounds from physical altercations on her body.” AKP Ardana concluded.
