Officer buried, cause of death remains uncertain

Chief Brig. Wagino, one of the two police officers who were found dead at their workplace in the Central Java town of Purwodadi on Saturday, was buried in Kebumen, also in Central Java, on Monday.

Wagino’s wife, Purwati, said her husband did not demonstrate anything peculiar prior to the shooting incident that killed him and his colleague First Brig. Iwan Eko Nugroho.

“He fetched our children to school as usual before he went to the police post on Friday,” Purwati was quoted by Antara.

Central Java police have remained in the dark about the cause of the twin deaths. The provincial police chief, Insp. Gen. Alex Bambang Riatmojo, said investigators were collecting more evidence of the case.

The two officers died of gunshot wounds, with each of them shot twice.
