The Singaporean victim of a murder in Hawaii died after being shot in the head, the Honolulu medical examiner has determined.

Hawaiian authorities told The Straits Times Thursday morning (Singapore time) that 33-year-old Tara Irdawati Isnin had died of "cranal cerebral injuries due to multiple gunshot wounds to the head".

Honolulu Police Department public affairs spokeswoman Teresa Bell said in a phone interview that the case has been classified as murder, and "there is only one suspect", whom Ms Bell could only identify as the 40-year-old male found with "apparent self-inflicted injuries" in the same apartment where Ms Tara's body was discovered.

He is still being hospitalised and no arrest has been made yet, added Ms Bell.
