In November 2007 Salvador Kamatoy was found dead behind a mega mall in Sharjah, one of the United Arab Emirates. Also known as Sally, Kamatoy was from the Philippines. She had arrived in Sharjah three weeks earlier and found a job in a hair salon. The coroner allegedly found no cause of death; but the Philippine Embassy informed Kamatoy's family that her head had been beaten in. According to a co-worker, interviewed in the Khaleej Times, Kamatoy was ‘new to the area but happy’. ‘He had lunch with me and told me that he is going to an internet cafe to send an email to his family, but he didn't return’, the co-worker continued (Abdullah 2007: 1).
