Argentine prosecutors open investigation Maradona’s death

The public prosecutor in Argentina has started an investigation into the death of Diego Maradona.

Iran PressAmerica: The death of the football star is being investigated because he died at home and no one signed the death certificate, according to judicial circles. But there is no 'suspicion of irregularities'. According to a preliminary autopsy report, Maradona died Wednesday at lunchtime of 'acute pulmonary edema and exacerbated chronic heart failure'.

Investigations have shown that Maradona was last seen alive by his caretaker. At around 6.30 a.m. on Wednesday, he made sure that Maradona had 'slept and breathed normally', according to a statement from the public prosecutor’s office published on Friday.

Maradona’s lawyer had previously requested an investigation and alleged that the 60-year-old’s condition had not been checked for 'twelve hours'. He thinks this is 'criminal madness'. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the nurse responsible at the time of death last heard Maradona 'move around the room' at 7:30 a.m. At 12.16 p.m., his doctor called the emergency number. About ten minutes later, an ambulance arrived in front of the house.
