Male New Zealander Found Dead On Labuan Jetty Marina


LABUAN: A New Zealand citizen was found dead with injuries on top and behind his head on the Labuan jetty marina on Sunday afternoon (Nov 10).

Labuan police chief Supt. Muhamad Farid Ahmad said Barry James Stanley, 63, a part-time teacher in Brunei had just arrived at the jetty from Brunei with his compatriot.

“It was around 12 noon (Sunday) when the Barry arrived with his friend from Brunei by sailing their yacht,” he was quoted as saying in a Bernama report Tuesday.

The deceased’s friend, Alistair Charles Muir had assisted him to tie up the boat at the dock, before going for lunch at a hotel nearby.

Farid however said the friend was shocked to see Barry lying helplessly (clad in short pants and t-shirt) and bleeding from his mouth on the jetty pathway after returning from lunch around 2pm.

“He shouted for help at the security guard in the guardhouse and with the help from a Bruneian, they conducted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him but to no avail,” he said.

“When the ambulance arrived 15 minutes later, Barry was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead at 2.45 pm.”

Investigation is on going and the cause of death is still being ascertained.
