A 26-year-old woman was found hanged in the kitchen of her apartment in Buzau, Mediafax informs. Her 11-month-old baby was found dead in the same room. The tragedy happened in a block of flats located on the Nicolae Balcescu Boulevard in Buzau. At first it was believed the woman killed her daughter first then committed suicide. Later the investigators discovered the woman had knife cuts on her neck and blood on her shirt.
According to crime scene investigator Iulian Mocanu, the woman’s and child’s deaths are considered “suspicious,” a conclusion set to be drawn after the autopsies are performed. Investigators now believe the woman may have tried to commit suicide with a knife. The area was cordoned off. The woman was the wife of an Iraqi doctor working with the Buzau County Hospital. He was the one that called the firefighters to break in the apartment that was closed from the inside. According to the investigators, the woman’s husband is in a state of shock and cannot communicate.
