AMMAN — Police are investigating the murder of a 53-year-old woman at her home in an Amman neighbourhood on Friday, official sources said.

The victim’s body was reportedly found by her daughter on Friday evening at her home in an apartment in Tabarbour neighbourhood and alerted the authorities, a senior official source said.

When investigators arrived at the scene, the official source told The Jordan Times, that they discovered that the woman “had bruises on her head and neck caused by blunt and sharp objects and determined that it was a homicide”.

“Our initial investigations indicated that the woman, who lived alone, was a widow. However, we still have not found the motive for the murder,” the source added.

A second source added that the “victim had been dead for around 10 hours”.

“Nothing was reportedly stolen from the house and the victim was fully dressed,” the second source told The Jordan Times.

Criminal Court Prosecutor Afif Khawaldeh visited the scene of the crime on Friday, a senior judicial source said.

“The victim’s body was transferred to the National Institute of Forensic Medicine for an autopsy and forensic experts sent blood and tissue samples to the criminal lab for further analysis,” the judicial source told The Jordan Times.
