“Whilst investigating the Faye Linn issue we got information on Wednesday that a male person died at the hospital. We proceeded to that location where we made checks where we saw the lifeless body of Mr.Plutarco Norales, he is a Honduran National has no fixed address. All we know is that he wanders around in the Boca Del Rio park and he a frequent drinker and remains in that area. So far we have canvassed the area and recorded several statements but nothing to indicate that anyone had caused any harm to him. Also from one of the statements they had stated that the swelling on his neck was a swelling that over time he had and they told him to go and check on it at the doctor and so we are still investigating that also but more than likely we will also after gathering all these statements from various people we will submit that file to the DPP as well after we have concluded that.”
