Police rule out homicide in death of woman found in lift shaft

SHANGHAI police said the woman found dead in a lift shaft yesterday was killed in an accident.

Lu Feng, the Shanghai Public Security Bureau spokesman, said this morning that the police had ruled out the possibility of homicide after initial investigation.

The victim's body was found in the lift shaft of a 12-story building in Huangpu District. She was around 30 years old but her identity has not been confirmed yet, police said.

An elevator maintenance worker found her body at 2pm yesterday in Huida Building at 748 Xizang Road S. The building has both apartments and offices.

It was rumored that the woman was found naked and residents questioned the building's security measures as its surveillance cameras had been broken for a while.
Police investigation is still ongoing.
