Woman found hanging in Ranau
Koisaan Point where the incident happened.
RANAU: A woman in her 20s was found hanging by a rope in a rented room at Koisaan Point, here, last Friday. 

Ranau District Police Chief DSP Simiun Lomudin said they were notified of the incident at 11am. 

He said the local woman, from Tamparuli, was found hanging in the locked room by a colleague and two other tenants of the house after repeated calls for her went unanswered.

“Preliminary investigations showed the woman’s colleague had gone to her residence to pick up the keys to the shop in Ranau town where both worked as shop assistants. 

“The colleague had earlier called the victim’s handphone, but there was no reply, and decided to come to her residence to find out what actually happened,” he added. 

After failing to get response, Simiun said, the colleague met the owner of the house and asked for a duplicate key to open the room door. 

The woman’s body was then sent to the Ranau Hospital for an autopsy, he said, adding the case has been classified as sudden death.
