Duisburg (dpa / lnw) - The dead man found in a room in a Duisburg hospital died of natural causes. That was the result of the autopsy of the body, said a police spokeswoman on Tuesday when asked. Alcohol was found in his blood. In addition, one is about to identify the previously unknown. "A DNA comparison is still ongoing. When it's completed, we'll be able to say more." Information from the population would have brought the investigators on the trail of the previously unknown.
The man, dressed in a shirt, T-shirt, sweatpants and sneakers, was found dead in a cleaning supplies room by a hospital worker on July 21. Since he had no identity papers with him, the police had asked the population for information on the identity of the approximately 60-year-old with a personal description and a mug shot.
