Man found hanged in Portimão

AN ELDERLY man was found hanged in Portimão early on Tuesday morning.

The body of the man, yet to be identified by the authorities, was found at 8.30am next to the José Buisel school in Portimão and was covered by a sheet to prevent passersby from being able to view the dead man. The body was later removed by local Bombeiros to the Instituto de Medicina Legal, the government run medical organisation responsible for forensic science and forensic pathology.

PSP agents are investigating the case.
