Becoming suspicious, the workers reported the incident to the police station that is located near the market. When the officers arrived at the location, the man was confirmed dead by the police investigator. Shortly after, the body was transported to the Negara Public Hospital. Officers contacted his family before transporting the body to Central Java. “According to our investigation, we didn’t find any signs from physical assault.
