A Thodupuzha-native was found dead in an apartment at Kumarasan Nagar in Kadavanthra on Sunday. The body was in a decomposed state.

The deceased was identified as Manju, 37, from Mangattu Kavala in Thodupuzha and had been staying at the apartment for the past one year.

The police stated that the dead body was at least four-days old. Police conducted an inquest and registered a case for unnatural death. The reason for the death can only be confirmed after the postmortem, police said.

Manju, who had been running a sanitary ware shop at Vyttila, was staying with another woman at the apartment for rent. Her roommate, identified as Lilly, had gone to her native place Thiruvananthapuram five days ago.

The police have asked Lilly to appear before it on Monday. The police contacted Lilly and collected basic details about the woman. Lilly told the police that Manju had been taking medicines for high blood pressure and diabetes.

Police have also contacted the owner of the apartment and the woman’s mother and asked them to appear at the Kadavanthra station.

The police could find nothing but Manju’s diary from the room during the preliminary examination. The diary has some financial details related to the shop, the police said.
