A team of forensic doctors from Denpasar’s Sanglah General Hospital performed an autopsy on the body of Linda Margareth Chiver, the Australian tourist found lying on the side of Jalan Uluwatu on Wednesday, April 10, 2013.

The results of the autopsy confirmed injuries to Melbourne, Victoria woman’s brain, back and chest.

Quoted in, the chief of forensic medicine at Sanglah Hospital, Dr. Ida Bagus Putu Alit, said: “We have completed the autopsy. There are wounds to the brain, head, back and chest. The character of those wounds have led us a preliminary conclusion that the victim died due to an accident.”

The woman is believed to have been struck by a car. The police, who continue to look for further clues in the woman’s death, now base their continuing investigation on the official autopsy report.

After the autopsy, the remains of the 54-year-old woman were cremated at the Mumbul Crematorium. According to the press, neither representatives of the woman’s family or the Australian Consulate attended the autopsy or the cremation.

Chiver was discovered by two local residents in the middle of the road on Jalan Uluwatu on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, bleeding and injured. She died one day later at the Sanglah General Hospital.

The women’s identity, who was unconscious when brought to the hospital, was only discovered about 10 days following the accident when the hotel where she was staying contacted the Australian Consulate in Bali who, in turn, contacted the woman’s family.
