Suicide or accident. These are the two arguments that now favor the bloodhounds of the Major Crime Investigation Team (MCIT) investigating the circumstances of the death of the French military Joachim Guiseppe Paumero.
They therefore rule out the possibility that there was foul play. Dr Sudesh Kumar Gungadin, head of the forensic department of the police and Dr Prem Shaman, Police Medical Officer, attributed the death of the young man of multiple injuries.
The 26-year-old man from Cognac, France, was expelled from a pub in Cascavelle on the evening of Friday July 15. He refused to be accompanied to the home of his mother, a Mauritian, in Albion. He thus made the walk up to Bambous, where his mother and sister came across him at 5:00 AM on Saturday July 16.
However, the latter had refused to board their vehicle. And that was the last time he was seen alive. His body was found decomposed at the foot of a cliff at Bassin-Vert, La Mecque, near Albion, 12 days later.
