Residents of Jatijajar subdistrict in Depok, West Java, found a body in the Kalibaru River at 6 p.m. on Thursday along Jl. Raya Bogor, directly in front of the archives of the Environment and Forestry Ministry.

“The residents said they smelled something rotting in the area,” Cimanggis Police chief Comr. Sunarto said on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.

The rainy weather hampered police efforts to recover the body. They eventually recovered the body from the river at midnight and rushed it to the National Police Hospital for an autopsy. The police are currently investigating to identify the body and the cause of death.

“It’s difficult to examine the body," said Sunarto, as it was in a state of severe decomposition. (vla)
