A British woman found dead in Bali may have been murdered, according to police.
Anne-Marie Drozdz’s body was discovered inside the villa where she was staying in Ubud on Thursday afternoon.
The doors of the property had been forced open and she reportedly had marks around her neck, which suggested she was choked.
Police commander Komang Arsana said: ‘We can’t say with any certainty that she was murdered, but it is definitely looking that way.
‘An initial external examination points to murder but we will know for certain after an autopsy has been carried out.’
A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office added: ‘We are aware of the death of a British national in Bali and are providing consular assistance to the family.’
An examination of Drozdz, who was in her 40s, at Sanglah Central Hospital, in capital Denpasar, revealed she had been dead for several hours when her body was found.
A construction worker was being held by police in relation to the incident, according to local reports.
