A French tourist, Pierre Maurice Jaques Girrard (66) was found dead in his room at an accommodation venue in Sanur, Bali on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the head of the criminal division of the Denpasar Police Precinct, Police Commissioner Ambariayadi Wijaya, said, “Based on the explanation provided by the (victim’s) wife, the man is known to have drank beer mixed with an unknown variety of alcohol while visiting a friends home on Jalan Kutat Lestari.”

Before his death at the Gunakaya Home Stay on Jalan Karangsari No. 11 in Sanur, the victim and his wife, Maarthin Thevin (60), visited the lodgings of a friend at near midnight to watch a televised soccer match.

The Frenchman’s wife discovered the man the following morning dead in his bed at 7:30 a.m..

The wife told the police that she suspected her husband may have died of a heart attack, having suffered a heart attack several years ago. Police found no indications of foul play when police forensic officers examined his body.
