Post-mortem says Oscar Armando Gomez Alvarez, 27, was chopped to death

A post-mortem conducted on the body of Oscar Armando Gomez Alvarez, 27, a Guatemalan of Los Tambos, Cayo District, certified that the cause of his death was due to acute lung failure due to acute pulmonary edema due to massive brain thrombosis as a consequence of chop wounds.

The autopsy was conducted at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital between 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. yesterday, Thursday.

Police said that on Monday, May 18, Alvarez was attacked and chopped multiple times in San Ignacio by an unknown man, and for reasons unknown. He was taken to the San Ignacio Hospital, where he was treated and later released, after which he went to stay in Los Tambos, in the Spanish Lookout area.

Eight days after he was discharged from the hospital to recover at his home, at about 3:30 Monday evening, a 10-year-old boy, the son of the woman who owned the farm house where Alvarez lived, went into the house and found him dead.

Police said that they are still investigating.
