Japanese Woman Raped & Murdered in Bali

Bali - A 33-year-old female Japanese tourist was found dead Monday in the Indonesian resort island of Bali, with injuries to her body indicating murder, according to local reports Tuesday.

Wilmar Marpaung, detective unit chief at the Bali Police Headquarters, said the body of Rika Sano was found at 4 p.m. Monday in a thicket of bushes on Mertahadi Street in the Kuta beach resort area.

Private television networks Trans7 and Surya Citra Televisi reported that Sano’s body was discovered after local residents noticed a foul smell.

Her body was found half-naked with signs of injuries, with her underwear, cellular phone, cosmetics and other belongings scattered around, raising suspicions that she was robbed and raped before being murdered, according to the reports.

Police also found a wood log, which might have been used to beat and kill the woman from Tokyo, Marpaung said.

Marpaung, however, refused to speculate on the cause of death.
