The naked body of an Australian company director was found dead in District 10, Ho Chi Minh City last week.
VnExpress has reported that on July 16, the phone of 51-year-old Australian national Alex Lee, the director of a tourism and educational service company in the southern city, rang out multiple times without any answer.
Along with several others, one male employee of the company came to Lee’s residence in alley 118, Nguyen Chi Thanh Street, District 10. He rang the doorbell many times as well but there was still no answer. Concerned, he called police officers.
Breaking into the residence, the police found Lee already dead, lying on his bed on the first floor of the house; his mouth and nose were splattered with blood.
The motorbike of the victim was also gone and there were signs indicating that the residence had been searched.
According to local residents, Lee had been renting the place for more than a year. He lived alone but was quite social.
The day before he was found dead, he walked along the alley and talked to people.
The case is being investigated by local police.
