SINGAPORE - The 36-year-old Singaporean businesswoman found unconscious in her Hong Kong hotel room last Saturday (Nov 12) died of a stroke, preliminary investigations have found.

Ms Linda Koh, managing director and successor to family-run business KSP Marketing, had been on a business trip. The company specialises in processing pork and other chilled or frozen meat products.

Ms Koh went to Hong Kong on Wednesday last week and had been expected to return on Saturday night, reported Shin Min Daily News. But that morning, she was found unconscious in her hotel room and rushed to the Queen Mary Hospital. She died soon after.

Her younger brother and ex-husband flew to Hong Kong on the night of her death to identify her body and are expected to return on Thursday (Nov 17).

 
 

Her wake will be held on Friday in Woodlands Street 11 and she is expected to be cremated on Sunday, reported the Chinese daily.

Her father, Mr Alan Koh, 74, earlier told Shin Min that she had a history of hypertension and saw a doctor for it. She was also taking medication.

The family is now waiting for the full findings of the report to be out, which may take months or up to a year.
