A Chinese man, Thomas Muller was on Sunday found dead by his wife, Wen Huidin at their Hillside home in Bulawayo.
The wife was returning from China and on her arrival at the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport, could not get in contact with her husband.
When she arrived at their house, she forced herself in through an open window to find the lifeless body of her husband.
The incident was confirmed by Bulawayo acting provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele. She said:
We are investigating a case of sudden death where a Chinese man was found dead in Hillside by his wife who had just come back from a trip.
She first tried calling him while at the airport and upon getting no responses, she ended up asking a friend to fetch her.
She ended up calling their gardener who had spare keys to the gate. She noted that the house was locked and gained entry by using a window which led to their study.
Her husband was lying dead on the floor facing upwards and upon investigations, police discovered that there were no visible injuries.
His body was taken to the United Bulawayo Hospitals for post mortem and we are waiting for the report to ascertain what could have caused the death.
