‘Investigators are working on leads’
Guam chief medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola has already conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of death of Li Qian Ding, a 59-year-old Chinese farmer who was found dead on the ground outside his house in As Lito last July 16.
A source at the Department of Public Safety disclosed that Espinola completed his autopsy on Ding at the Commonwealth Healthcare Center’s morgue last Sunday.
DPS has yet to release to the media the results of the autopsy as investigation is ongoing.
Asked if the wife is a suspect or a person of interest, the source said investigators have yet to clear her as investigation is continuing.
DPS acting spokesman Jason Tarkong yesterday said they are working on leads, but that he is unable to comment on the ongoing investigation to protect the integrity of the case.
The wife, a Carolinian, found Ding lying face down outside their house and called 911 on July 16 early morning.
Police responded to the scene at 6am.
Tarkong early this week disclosed that there were obvious signs that Ding had been lifeless for some time before he was found.
Ding and his wife were only staying in the house as they have no children, a neighbor said.
