Police on Thursday were not ruling out foul play in the death of a 46-year-old woman in Yeroskipou, Paphos.
The woman, a Bulgarian national, was spotted laying in a field by a passer-by, who notified authorities.
At the time, the woman was still alive, but was complaining of severe pain.
She was rushed to Paphos general hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.
An autopsy on her body will be carried out on Friday.
Paphos CID were interviewing a number of persons working around the area where the woman was found.
Police were also interviewing her male partner.
Citing sources, the Cyprus News Agency said the woman’s body bore multiple cuts caused by a sharp object.
According to the state broadcaster, it is possible the woman may have sustained injuries in a work-related accident, and then taken to the field by her employers and left there.
