Kiwi Found Dead in Hotel Bathroom


A 41-year-old New Zealand man is believed to have committed suicide in Buleleng on Sunday.

Scott Ramsay was found in the early hours of the morning in a bathroom at the Taman Selini Hotel in Pemuteran by his brother-in-law, Douglas Stuart Barlett.

He had reportedly hung himself from a showerhead.

Buleleng Police spokesman Putu Wedanajati said that Ramsay’s body had been transferred to Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar for autopsy, but that there were no suspicions of foul play.

“The victim committed suicide. We found no evidence of violence on his body,” he said.

Wedanajati said that Ramsay worked as a school director in his home country, and had recently gone through a divorce. He had come to Bali with Barlett for a diving holiday.

Wedanajati said the New Zealand consular authorities had been informed of the death.
