Mahdia businesswoman was choked, beaten to head and face – PME


A Post Mortem Examination (PME) conducted on the remains of Denise Vieira, a 47-year-old businesswoman of Mahdia, revealed that she died as a result of “asphyxiation due to compression injuries to the neck, compounded by multiple blunt trauma to the head and face, consistent with choking.”

Police Headquarters said the autopsy was performed by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh in the presence of the woman’s two daughters.

The businesswoman was found dead by her husband at her Pepper Hill, Mahdia house at around 13:45 hrs on Wednesday. Police suspect the husband – a 33-year-old pork-knocker – to be the perpetrator and he remains in custody as the investigation continues.

Neighbours, according to the police, recalled the couple arguing shortly before Vieira was found dead. Police found several wounds on her body including deep cuts about her face and black and blue marks to the neck.
