The investigation to determine what happened during the early hours of this Wednesday in Parque Saavedra where this morning they found a corpse floating in the water of the lake had an advance: They identified at least who it was: it is a 42-year-old man, identified as Santiago Violante and that he was domiciled in the area of ​​Diagonal 80 and 3.

On the other hand, official sources told EL DIA that the victim suffered from COPD (chronic pulmonary obstruction disease) and that he was on medication. His body is already at the headquarters of the Judicial Morgue and in the next few hours an autopsy will be performed that will determine the cause of his death.

As this newspaper published, the macabre discovery this morning in the park at 13 and 66 still has many questions. After 8 o’clock, the Municipal Prevention Urban Guard found the body of a man floating in the lake and from there began a case that is being investigated to find out if he died of natural causes or if it was a murder.

In the midst of uncertainty, and with a huge operation in which the Police, Firefighters and members of the Scientific participated, the body was removed from the lake around 10:30. Experts had already set to work at the scene to preserve the scene and look for clues about the victim.

This newspaper was able to find out that the first information indicates that it was a death due to a circumstantial fall and that the man would have been drunk. This hypothesis follows from the fact that several bottles of alcoholic beverages were found at the scene of the incident. They also reported that there would be remains of marijuana cigarettes.

This is a first approximation, since the autopsy on the corpse will determine if the man had any type of injury, be it a blow, a bullet or a stab wound. Although at first glance they were not noticed. In addition, at this time the Justice is behind the security cameras in the area, to find out if they were able to capture any scene that could clarify the case. For now, the strongest clue is that the victim, allegedly drunk, fell into the lake and drowned when he was face down, although other hypotheses such as a previous fight are not ruled out.

The prosecutor of UFI No. 6 Marcelo Romero, in dialogue with EL DIA, specified that “we were notified of a person floating in the Saavedra Park lake. The specialized police personnel of special firefighter rescues managed to extract him. There are no signs of violence , was well dressed, and from what we can know, we rule out that he is a person on the street. There is no documentation and he is not identified.”
