Police are investigating after a restaurant worker hanged herself in her dormitory in San Kio district yesterday.

The Judiciary Police (PJ) identified the deceased as a 52-year-old woman surnamed Deng, a non-resident worker from mainland China, who  lived with her colleagues in a dormitory in Rua de Francisco Xavier Pereira in San Kio district.

According to the PJ, a colleague last saw Deng when she returned to her room at 6:30 pm yesterday, but Deng did report at the restaurant for her usual shift . 

A colleague decided to check up on her, but after receiving no response from within the locked room looked through the vent, only to find that Deng had hanged herself.

Firefighters arrived at the scene and broke into the room where they found Deng hanging from the bunk bed frame by a silk scarf. They despatched her to hospital by ambulance, where she was pronounced dead.

PJ officers confirmed that the marks on Deng’s neck matched the silk scarf she used to hang herself.

An initial examination of the body showed that Deng had no injuries that could have been caused by foul play, nor were any signs of a struggle found at the scene. No suicide note was found either.

The PJ said that a post-mortem examination will be performed, The Macau Post Daily reported.
