Bali Post reports that 19 unclaimed and unidentified bodies, believed to be foreign tourists, are stored in the morgue of Bali Sanglah General Hospital.

Dr. Ida Bagus Putu Alit, the head of the Forensic Section at Sanglah said the 19 John and Jane Doe's have accumulated at his facility between July 19 and September 1, 2011 with no friends or family members coming to the hospital to identify the remains or claim them for final disposition.

The latest body to enter the facility did so on August 30, 2011. She was a woman, identified only as “Mrs. X,” found in the Hotel Rita on Jalan Popies No. I in Kuta. The woman had been dead in the hotel for between 18-24 hours before being discovered by hotel staff. The woman is believed to be between 40-45 years of age, black skinned, 168 centimeters tall and weighing 119 kilograms.

An examination of the woman’s body indicates she had a medical history that included a caesarian birth procedure.

An autopsy of the mystery woman’s body also recovered 82 condom capsules of narcotics containing methamphetamine. NusaBali reports that the weight of the drugs found in the stomach of the woman totalled 1.2 kilograms leading police to conclude the woman was acting as a “mule” for a drug syndicate.

If no one clams the remains of the unidentified dead authorities will preserve photographs and physical evidence for future reference before eventually sending the bodies for cremation at Mumbal, South Bali.
