New Zealand citizen found dead with head injuries at Labuan jetty marina

LABUAN, Malaysia (The Star/ANN) - A New Zealand citizen was found dead with injuries to the top and back of his head at the Labuan jetty marina on Sunday afternoon (Nov 10).

Labuan police chief Supt Muhamad Farid Ahmad said Barry James Stanley, 63, a part-time teacher in Brunei had just arrived at the jetty from Brunei with his compatriot.

"It was around noon (Sunday) when the deceased arrived with his friend from Brunei by sailing using their yachts.

"The deceased's friend, Alistair Charles Muir, was assisting him to tie up the boat at the dock, before going for lunch at a leading hotel nearby, ” he added.

Farid, however, said Muir was shocked to see the deceased lying helplessly (clad in short pants and T-shirt) and bleeding from his mouth on the jetty pathway after returning from lunch at around 2pm.

"He shouted for help from the security guard at the guardhouse and with the help of a Bruneian, they conducted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him but to no avail.

"When the ambulance arrived 15 minutes later, the deceased was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead at 2.45 pm," he said.

Investigations are still on going and the cause of death is still being ascertained. - Bernama
