Police officers came upon an unconscious man along Beach Road last Tuesday who was later confirmed dead.
According to a Department of Public Safety statement, police came upon a male individual at about 10:53pm last Tuesday along Beach Road. He was lying on the ground and was not responding to the officers’ questions.
Upon failing to rouse him, police later found out that the man had no pulse. He was immediately brought to the Commonwealth Health Center, where he was pronounced dead.
As of 6:49pm yesterday, the cause of death has yet to be determined. Police have yet to identify the man.
The DPS statement said that police officers were doing routine patrol along Beach Road when they noticed an individual who seemed to be sleeping on the ground and not responding to the officers’ questions.
The officers noticed that the individual did not look like he was breathing, so they made their way toward the victim while notifying DPS Dispatch of their location and to ask for medics.
After failing to get a response, one of the officers checked for a pulse and noticed the victim didn’t have one. They immediately notified the CNMI DPS Central Office to send crime scene technicians, Criminal Investigative Bureau detectives, and medics to the scene.
Medics arrived at about 11:03pm and were briefed by the officers about what they had discovered. Shortly after, crime scene technicians and CIB detectives arrived to document and investigate further.
At about 11:18pm, the body of the victim was brought to CHC for further examination and was pronounced dead.
Two weeks ago, a man was found dead near Dandan Middle School. He reportedly died of natural causes.
Prior to that, two other lifeless bodies were found in Kagman and Chalan Kanoa earlier this year.
