Deceased nurse's body sent to Philippines

The body of the deceased IGMH nurse, Mary Grace, has been sent back to her home country, the Philippines. The police said the body was sent off to the Philippines on Thursday afternoon.

The police began investigating Mary's death on October 19, after her husband, also a Filipino nurse working at IGMH, reported her death as a suicide. The police suspected foul play and pursued further investigation. While Mary's husband was subsequently arrested, he has twice been remanded in custody for 15 days each time.

Mary's body was sent to India, where a post-mortem was conducted. Based on the results, the police said it was unlikely that Mary had killed herself and that it was more likely that she took a direct hit that caused her death.

Mary lived in capital Male' City with her husband and their five-year-old child.
