Karunagapally: The police have found a letter from near the body of a 48-year-old housewife who was found dead inside her house at Thodiyur.
The note indicated Sreekumari ended her life because of huge debts. Though he letter stated no one else is responsible for her death, police are suspicious. Her husband Anil Kumar, a wood cutter, has been taken into custody from his workplace.
Kumar reportedly told the police that he left home as usual early in the morning and his wife had made a cup of tea for him. Their son Devan had gone out for temple rituals and daughter was at his parent's house.
The house as well as the room where the body was lying were locked from inside. A blood-stained chopper, which Kumar has been using for his work, was found near the body. Sreekumari's throat was found slit and a vein on her arm was ruptured.
Kollam City Police Commissioner V K Madhu is leading the probe. The body has been sent for post-mortem.
