Body of a Man Found

The body of a man was found on the cliff face below the Pináculo viewpoint today.

According to media outlet, JM, the Mdeiran Volunteer Firefighters, Public Security Police, and the Regional Command for Relief Operations received information that a body had been spotted 120 m below the viewpoint.

Once the body was retrieved and all possible evidence collected, the corpse was transported to the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital morgue.

The newspaper understands that the authorities are only able to determine, at this time, that the body is that of an adult male.

The case is now under the jurisdiction of the Judiciary Police who will now collect as much information as possible to ensure that the man is positively identified, and if possible, the circumstances leading up to his death.

The investigative process will involve the consultation of the missing persons database, the interviewing of possible witnesses, and DNA collection.
