A man who was found dead on 12 August in a residential suburb in north-west Brussels was unlikely to have been killed by a third party, the Brussels public prosecutor reported on Wednesday.
“The correct cause of death is not yet known, and a toxicological investigation is ongoing,” said public prosecutor Willemien Baert. “But nothing makes it possible to conclude at this stage of the investigation that there has been a third-party intervention,” added Baert, reported Bruzz.
The man was found dead under a bridge on Avenue de Vilvorde, in Laeken, on 12 August around 6:00 PM. Shortly after the body was found, the public prosecutor launched an investigation into the circumstances of the man’s death.
An autopsy conducted in mid-August was not able to determine the cause of death.
The identity of the man has been confirmed, said the public prosecutor on Wednesday, reported La Capitale.
