The Police in Jinja have commenced investigations into the death of a Swedish national identified as Takis Pacis 75-year-old whose lifeless body was found lying on a sofa set inside his residence along Kisinja road in Jinja municipality on Monday morning.
Diana Nandawula, the Kiira Region Police Spokesperson confirmed the incident, explaining that the deceased was the proprietor of Bohemia resort along Kayunga road in Buikwe district.
According to an employee of the resort who preferred anonymity, the deceased was seen jogging on Sunday evening and they do not know what could have killed him in such a short period of time.
"I saw boss jogging outside the gate for close to two hours but later on sat outside the house until 11:00pm when he went to sleep. This morning, I called him out for breakfast but he wasn't responding that's when we decided to contact police," the employee narrated.
The deceased according to a police source was found with a bandage on his left leg. "On retrieving the body, we noticed a bandage covering a small wound on his left leg, which I highly suspect that the deceased might have acquired in the past three days," the source said.
According to Nandawula, they are working with the Swedish embassy to conduct post-mortem to ascertain the cause of death.
His body was handed over to Jinja Regional Referral Hospital mortuary for storage pending postmortem at Mulago city mortuary.
