Indianville resident post-mortem inconclusive

A post-mortem conducted on the body Francisco Reyes, 65, of Bukut Street in the Indianville area of Punta Gorda, who was found decomposing in his house last Tuesday, could not ascertain the cause of death, due to the state of decomposition of the body.

The post-mortem was conducted on site between 4:00 and 5:00 that same Tuesday afternoon, and the examination was carried out by Doctor Mario Estrada Bran, Police coroner. Reyes was buried immediately after the autopsy.

Police said that Reyes was found dead in his house on Monday, after neighbors who last saw him on Friday became concerned after not seeing him over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, May 24 and 25.

On Monday, May 26, they went to his house, and because the door was locked from inside, they called police, who made a forced entry into the house and found Reyes’ decomposing body.

Police said that no signs of violence were noted on his body, so foul play was ruled out.
