November 8, 2011 |  3:15 pm

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.
