The body of a 35-40-year-old man was found in the early hours of yesterday morning in the los Pocitos area of the Añaza coast near Santa Cruz. Police confirmed the discovery after receiving a call from a member of the public, and it seems they believe the man could have been dead since the early hours of Saturday.
Tragically, the body was found at the bottom of a 7 metre drop, in a lane full of rubble and detritus carried along by the recent rains. At the top of the hill overlooking the scene, they found a note. It seems that it was a suicide note, but police are not confirming its contents at the moment, nor the identity of the poor man.
An autopsy is to be carried out, but police sources indicate that it is clear death was caused by the impact of the fall. LO
