Woman found hanged in Alhambra apartment
Authorities were investigating the death of a woman found hanged in the bedroom of an Alhambra apartment.
Elizabeth Kartika Setiawan, 38, was pronounced dead early Sunday morning in what L.A. County coroner’s officials are calling ether a suicide or homicide.
The victim “had a rope around her neck but also sustained blunt-force trauma at the head,” said spokesman Ed Winter.
A statement from the Alhambra Police Department said authorities found the victim’s boyfriend “holding up” the victim.
He is considered a person of interest in the death but has not been arrested. An autopsy of the woman was scheduled Tuesday.
