Posted by David Khoirul
Solikun -- a 28-year-old man from Blimbing, a village in the subdistrict of Paciran, Lamongan, East Java -- was found dead in a pool near his house Sunday. He was enjoying a honeymoon for his one-month marriage. His wife, Khoirotun, is a 25-year-old woman from Bumirejo, Bojonegoro.

He was having a bath with Khoirotun that afternoon when suddenly he drowned. According to a local villager, Solikun died after he had his wife take his sarong from home.

"He was drowning after asking his wife to get a sarong for him," said Joko, Solikun's neighbour.

Khoirotun happened to see his husband asking for help. "People were trying to help but he was already dead as we got him up out of the water," Joko said.

Police are still investigating the case. Some villagers and witnesses were interrogated to find out more about his death.
