Naked Japanese Woman Found Dead in Kuta
KUTA ~ The body of a Japanese woman has been found naked and bound in Kuta, police said on Sunday.
Hiromi Shimada, 41, had been stabbed repeatedly in the stomach. Her body was discovered in a rented house in the popular tourist area on Saturday evening, Bali Police spokesman I Gede Sugianyar said.
“The victim was found with several stab wounds on her stomach. Her legs were tied with cloth and she was naked,” he said.
