Indonesian migrant worker was found dead in Malaysia with some stitches on her body.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, KUPANG -- The East Nusa Tenggara Regional Police is investigating the death of Milka Boimau, an Indonesian female worker. Boimau was found dead in Malaysia with several stitches on her body.

"Currently, we are investigating the unnatural death of Boimau," East Nusa Tenggara Police spokesperson, Senior Commissioner Jules Abraham Abast said in Kupang on Tuesday.

On early Tuesday morning, Boimau's family approached the police headquarters to report the case, which was suspected to be a theft of human organs, considering the stitches found on Boimau's neck down to her lower abdomen.

The East Nusa Tenggara Police will be coordinating with the Indonesia's National Police and the Royal Malaysia Police of Penang to investigate the case.

"We must start from the locus delicti or the scene in Malaysia. Therefore, we will cooperate with the Malaysian police and the Indonesian embassy in Malaysia to examine the autopsy results of the victim," Abast explained.

Boimau was one of the two Indonesian migrant workers, originating from East Nusa Tenggara, who were found dead in Malaysia.

Based on information received by the Indonesian Migrant Workers Placement, Protection, and Monitoring Agency Kupang, Boimau passed away in Penang on March 7 due to chronic lung disease, while Mateus Seman, the other male worker, died of heart failure on March 5 in Tawau.

As soon as her body arrived in Kotabes Village, East Nusa Tenggara, on Monday (March 12), Boimau's family was shocked to find several stitches on her body.

The family strongly protested any procedure carried out on Boimau's body, as no permission had been taken from the family.

"We do not know much about these stitches, but we will report the issue to the authorities to investigate," Boimau's brother, Saul, noted.

Saul opined that an autopsy should be conducted on the body of Boimau, following a notice from the hospital or the Indonesian embassy to the family.

However, the family only received a letter stating that the female worker had died of asphyxiation and an autopsy was not needed.
