A Singaporean national, Mohamed Isa bin Omar, 67, was found dead in his hotel room in Batam, Riau Islands, on Tuesday.

His body was found by the employees of the Lai Lai Hotel in Batam where he was staying. A room service worker had reported to his supervisor and then police Omar's disappearance after he had not been seen for a few days having stayed at the hotel for the last two weeks. Since Tuesday morning a rotting odor started to emanate from his room on the fourth floor of the small hotel, receptionist Lindawati said on Tuesday.

"We decided to break open his room with police in the afternoon. He was dead when we found him and part of his body had been rotting," she said adding that Omar had booked for a long stay.

Police investigators then conducted a crime scene investigation and brought the body to Bhayangkara Police Hospital for an autopsy.

Batu Ampar Police's crime investigations unit chief Adj. Comr. Kahardani said the police are still investigating the cause of death.

From his personal data, Omar lived in an apartment on Yishun Avenue in Singapore. (rin)
