Was Juan Menjivar a Victim of Foul Play?

Juan Young Menjivar

On Tuesday morning, shortly before three o’clock, the body of twenty-year-old Juan Menjivar was discovered by police in an area between miles forty-two and forty-three on the Southern Highway, in the vicinity of the Monkey River Junction.  Menjivar, a resident of Water Side Area in Independence Village, was observed in an unconscious state lying in a pool of blood, suffering from an apparent injury to the head.  An initial investigation later revealed that he had been walking along the Southern Highway in Bella Vista Village along with another person and both men were said to be heavily under the influence of alcohol.  Menjivar was transported to the Independence Polyclinic where he was pronounced dead on arrival.  While police have since ruled the incident as sudden death, a post mortem examination has concluded that he died as a result of a severe head injury due to massive skull fracture.  Police have since detained a twenty-six-year-old man pending the outcome of an investigation.
