Robbers killed a 61-year-old Swiss woman on her farm in central Hungary, police announced Thursday.

Budapest -- Robbers bludgeoned a 61-year-old Swiss woman to death and then dumped her body into a well on her farm in central Hungary, police announced Thursday.

"She was killed by hits on the head and her body was dumped into the well in the courtyard of her farm," Eleonora Bornemissza, a spokeswoman for Bacs-Kiskun county police, told AFP.

"A laptop and two mobile phones were stolen from the property, most likely by the killers," she added.

The victim, who had purchased the farm in Kecskemet Szank in 2006 and lived there alone, went missing on Wednesday.

Alarm was raised when a German friend went to visit her and she failed to respond. He then asked a Hungarian to call the police.

Police found the body overnight, the spokeswoman said.
