A foreigner, allegedly from Switzerland was found hanged at a house in Kampung Tenglu Laut, near Mersing, yesterday.

According to reports, police said the victim was identified from Nicola Simone, 59, who was discovered about 9am.

Police were alerted by the landlord who said his tenant did not answer the door despite several attempts.

A team from the police Criminal Investigation Department rushed to the scene following the report.

They managed to break down the door and found the man hanged from a rope attached to a beam.

All the victim's belongings were in the room.

Witnesses said the victim rented the room about three months ago and was last seen on Saturday evening.

The body has since been sent for a post-mortem.
