Mr. J.E.A.M. was discovered on Monday, Jan 4th, by relatives who came to see him, and upon entering, found him hanged inside the premises of the property located on Calle 19 (between 18 and 20) in that area of Mérida.
Help from paramedics was immediately requested, who upon arrival only confirmed that the man had already died, so police officers cordoned off the place and requested the assistance of the Forensic Medical Service.
