A 37-year-old woman was found dead in her apartment in Paralimni on Tuesday evening, police said.
According to Famagusta police, her friends notified the authorities at approximately 6pm after not having heard from the 37-year-old all day. The fire service and police immediately arrived on the scene, where there was a scent of smoke.
Firefighters broke the woman’s apartment door down, and discovered the British expat dead in the bathroom.
Police said that the walls appeared to have been blackened by fire, and that state pathologist Sophocles Sophocleous examined the scene.
Initial information from the investigations at the scene show that there was no criminal activity involved.
Police are continuing their investigations, and a post-mortem examination will be conducted on Wednesday.
