Mauritius: A shopkeeper of 68 found dead




A shopkeeper of 68 years, living in Riambel, Mauritius was found dead on his bed by his nephew late in the afternoon of last Tuesday.
 
At first, relatives believed that she was dead of natural causes. However, an autopsy yesterday morning, attributes the cause of the death of the sexagenarian to asphyxia. Wounds were discovered at the mouth. She reportedly died Monday night.

The nephew would have noticed that the shop of his aunt remained closed because, unlikely, she worked from seven o'clock in the morning until 7: 30 pm.
 
The sexagenarian lived alone at her home. Her funeral took place yesterday afternoon. Scene of Crime Office and the Forensic Science Laboratory experts subsequently searched her shop in an attempt to gather clues for the investigation.

The shopkeeper's daughter, married, found that her mother's jewelery and the contents of the box had disappeared. Moreover, a glass was broken from the outside. Several suspects, including notorious recidivists in the area were interrogated by investigators yesterday, as the newspaper L'Express relates. The police investigation continues.
