Epileptic found 5 days after falling into River

BENQUE VIEJO–The body of Otto Contreras, 32, an epileptic of Calla Creek, Cayo District, was found between Calla Creek and Clarissa Falls at about 8:00 Saturday morning by villagers who were out looking for him.

The body was in an advanced state of decomposition, and it was buried in the area after a post-mortem was carried out which certified that the cause of his death was drowning.

Police said that about 10:00 last Monday morning, Contreras went to the Mopan River to wash sacks for feed when he fell into the water and failed to resurface.

An extensive search by members of the Coast Guard, the police and villagers of the area was carried out to recover him, but the effort was in vain.

No foul play is suspected.
