Morales was last seen alive by relatives when he left home on March twenty-ninth and on April first he was spotted in Arenal. Later on the same day, his body was fished out of the river. Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett confirmed today during the weekly press brief that the cause of death is drowning.
