UPDATE 2: Man found dead at sea, body brought ashore at Manoel Island

The Police are investigating the death of a young Serb national whose body was found in the sea near Manoel Island yacht marina. The Police said that the Serbian’s body was seen floating in the sea at around 8.15 this morning. Police officers on site found a man in a dinghy trying to assist the Serb who appeared to be unconscious. The 29-year old youth was certified dead on the spot.

Informed sources said that there were no signs of violence on the victim’s body, and it appears that he had drowned. However, an autopsy and forensic tests will have to established, among other things, if his death was connected with drugs abuse. It is understood that the young Serb lived with his Maltese friend on a boat, and at one moment the Maltese man’s mother was also on the boat as the Serb acted strangely and was referred for treatment.

Several police officers from the district station and the forensic section were present at the Gżira yacht marina. Duty magistrate, Ian Farrugia, appointed a number of experts, including forensic doctor Mario Scerri, to assist him in the inquiry.

Investigations on the case are continuing.
