Homicide for alleged robbery in Mérida’s Prado Chuburná subdivision

José E. C. P. (aka) “Kiko” was found dead at his home in the Del Prado Chuburná subdivision, for which reason the State Attorney General’s Office and the Ministry of Public Security started the corresponding investigations through the homicide protocol.

The first reports indicate that the cause of death was a forceful blow to the head and when the body was found by his relatives it had been at least 10 hours after he had died.

Shortly after one in the afternoon on Friday, Dec. 31st, relatives went to visit this 62-year-old person, who lived in a house on 28th Street of the Del Prado Chuburná subdivision, but upon arrival, they were surprised to see the front door open.

Upon entering, they found their relative lying unconscious on the ground and with blood coming out of his head, so they requested emergency services.

However, when paramedics from the Ministry of Public Security arrived, they could only confirm that the man in his sixties was dead and requested the intervention of the judicial authorities.

Personnel from the Public Ministry and Expert Services of the State Attorney General’s Office are looking for those responsible for the murder, and the Forensics experts carried out the removal of the body.

The case was referred to the State Investigation Police to find those responsible for these events. Information from relatives revealed that there was a safe in the house of the deceased that is missing, so the murderer must have been someone who knew about the existence of this safe.
