Argentine police have raided the house of a man who was present at Diego Maradona’s death as they continue to investigate whether his passing was a result of involuntary manslaughter.
Officers raided the residence of a man named Maximiliano Trimarchi in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires yesterday 15th December.
Trimarchi was at the home of football legend Diego Maradona, 60, in the city of Tigre in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires when the former World Cup winner died on 25th November.
Police have since started investigating his death to see if there was any sort of negligence by attending doctors. Neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov are being probed as potential suspects.
Cops learned that Trimarchi was present at the football star’s home at the time of his death after studying video surveillance footage.
Agents raided his residence and confiscated his mobile phone to see if it contained any important information, however he is not being investigated as a suspect.
Local media said Trimarchi was working for Maradona’s lawyer and friend Matias Morla, running simple errands and driving people around including the neurosurgeon and psychiatrist who are now being investigated.
The San Isidro Attorney General issued a statement explaining the raid was conducted because Trimarchi failed to let the authorities know he was at the house at the time of Maradona’s death which is currently under investigation.
