Panaji, Dec 22 (IANS) A French woman was found dead in a trailer parked near Vagator beach in Goa, while a man believed to be her companion was lying unconscious next to her, police said Monday. The trailer, equipped with modern amenities including a mini kitchen, was found parked near Vagator beach, 25 km from state capital Panaji, Sunday. Police suspect it could be a case of drug overdose.

“The post mortem examination will be conducted Monday. The other foreigner who was conscious has been admitted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital. He is still in a state of shock,” a police official said.

Although no passport was found, police narrowed down on the nationality of the woman from the number plate on the trailer in which her body was found.

Police said they would try and identify the victim on the basis of foreigner registration forms that hotels or guest houses are required to submit to the police. These forms have the personal details of foreign guests.
