Hong Kong police are investigating after a 50-year-old woman’s naked dead body was found on Thursday at a Kowloon restaurant which is undergoing renovation.
At around 10:30am, a renovation worker reported to the police that there was a dead body on the patio of the building in To Kwa Wan, Sing Pao reported.
It is understood that the dead woman was naked and covered in blood.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of the building and had been scheduled to open next month.
Police officers cordoned off the restaurant to try and determine if any foul play was involved. They classed the case as a dead body found and the actual cause of death will be determined by an autopsy, Oriental Daily reported.
It was understood that the woman, said to be a widow and a cleaning worker, had suffered depression for ten years. She lived alone in a subdivided flat on the first floor of the same building, Headline Daily reported.
