Elderly man found dead in rented room


SIBU: A man was found dead in his rented room in a shophouse at Tanahmas Road here yesterday.

A tenant sensed something amiss when he did not hear television sound from the room.

The 63-year-old known only as Admin was found by the tenant and landlord, motionless and face down in his room at 9.30am.

Admin, a tenant for 18 years, used to repair shoes in town. He was not able to work three years ago after he suffered a stroke.

When he recovered from the ailment a few months ago, he worked at a restaurant.

He left behind his wife in Kuching and their son at Kampung Bahagia Jaya.
