Malta Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

The po­lice are hold­ing a per­son in con­nec­tion with the death of an English­man in St Paul’s Bay on Wed­nes­day evening, the po­lice said.

In a state­ment, the po­lice said its as­sis­tance was sought at 8.30pm in a res­i­dence in Mer­luzz Street.

Of­fi­cers who went on site dis­cov­ered the body of a man who, it was later es­tab­lished, was that of an English­man aged 77.

An au­topsy car­ried out yes­ter­day led the po­lice to treat the in­ci­dent as a “sus­pi­cious death”.

A per­son is be­ing held by the po­lice in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent. The po­lice did not give gender, age or na­tion­al­ity.

Mag­is­trate Aaron Bugeja is con­duct­ing an in­quiry.
