A foreigner identified as a male Australian citizen was found dead on Suluban Beach earlier this morning, with early reports indicating that the deceased had a bloody nose and a bruised chest.
A spokesman from the Denpasar Police, I Ketut Sukadi, has confirmed the discovery.
“He was already dead by the time he was found,” Sukadi said.
The deceased, identified as TS, reportedly lived not too far from the beach. He was found lying face down under a cave on Suluban Beach by a local resident who had gone out to surf this morning.
Police arrived at the scene not too long after receiving a report, and TS was then taken to Sanglah General Hospital for further examination. At the time of publication, authorities have yet to reveal more information on the case.
