Police in Taiwan on Sunday urged the public to be more aware of the people around
them after a woman’s death at an internet cafe went unnoticed for hours.
The 37-year-old woman was found dead Saturday at an internet cafe in the northern city of Hsinchu, according to local police.
A preliminary investigation showed that she died of cardiac arrest, although prosecutors and forensic experts are still confirming the cause of death, the police said.
Police said the woman arrived alone at the cafe late on Friday night. Shortly after her arrival, she leaned against a partition between the seats and stopped moving, apparently because of some discomfort, police said after viewing the cafe’s surveillance recording. It was not until Saturday that the night shift employees at the cafe discovered something was wrong and called the police. [FULL STORY]
