A 46-year-old Bulgarian woman found in a field in Paphos died from hemorrhagic shock resulting from multiple injuries, possibly caused by farming equipment, reports said on Friday.

Petrana Milkova was spotted lying in a field on Thursday at lunchtime by a passer-by, who called an ambulance.

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.

Following a five-hour post mortem, state pathologist Angeliki Papetta said she was handing her findings over to police, declining to offer further comment.

Police continued their investigation into the incident, focusing on the area where the woman was found.

Officers were examining farming equipment in the area and have questioned several people who work there, but so far they have no leads.

Meanwhile, the woman’s 46-year-old partner, Ivan Ivanov, said the couple had arrived in Cyprus a few days ago to find work.

He said he went to work in the morning at a plant nursery while his partner told him she was planning to go out at around 10am in search of a job.

But in the afternoon the police called him to let him know what had happened. The man said he was told that his partner was seen alive at around 11.10am walking in the area where she was later found injured.

The woman has a daughter who lives in Germany and a son in Bulgaria from her first marriage.

Ivanov appealed for financial help so that he could fly her body to Bulgaria and arrange for her funeral.
