Kembangan Police chief Comr. Aldo Ferdian said the body was found by Slamet, 50, who was passing by near the scene. At first he thought it was someone who was asleep.

The police are still investigating the cause of death and urged the public to report any lost family members.

“The body has been brought to the Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital for autopsy,” Aldo said....
