A pastor was found dead on a street in Merauke, Papua, on Thursday morning with a gunshot wound to her head.

The victim was identified as Frederika Metalmeti, the pastor of the Bethlehem Pentecostal church in Boven Digoel district for the past 10 years.

“The victim is a resident of Tanah Merah,” National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said on Thursday. “Police officers investigating the crime scene found a 4.5-millimeter shell casing, helmet, bag and sandals owned by the victim.”

Boy said the perpetrator shot Frederika on her left forehead.

“The remains are being autopsied at Boven Digoel hospital,” he said.

Boy said police have yet to determine the motive of the shooting but they were in the process of questioning two witnesses.
