EA 52-year-old woman was found dead at her residence in Natesan Nagar near 100-feet-road, on Monday evening. Police identified the deceased as Susheela Bai (52), wife of Ramasamy, an engineer in Saudi Arabia.
Susheela, who lived with her husband in Saudi, arrived here a month ago to attend the funeral of her brother Ilango’s wife. After the funeral, she stayed at her house to oversee renovation work. Ramasamy, who tried contacting her, grew suspicious as she was not answering his calls and asked Ilango to check on her.
Ilango found the door of Susheela’s house locked and the key lying outside. On opening the door, he found Susheela dead. Reddiarpalayam police registered a case and suspect the victim might have been strangulated. Investigations are on.
