Police Investigate Man’s Death on Capitan Drive

Date: Saturday, March 12, 2016, 9:37am
Location: 2322 Capitan Drive

Event: Unattended Death
Case Number: 1603120052

Corpus Christi Police Homicide Investigators are investigating the death of a 39-year-old man on the 2300 block of Capitan Saturday.

Corpus Christi Police responded to Capitan at 9:37am when a person phoned for help for an unconscious man who was outside an apartment on the stairs and appeared in need of medical help. Corpus Christi Fire Department Medical staff determined the man was not alive and Police Officers requested additional resources to evaluate the scene because the man was 39 years old and appeared not to have any obvious medical condition that would have contributed to the death.

The Corpus Christi Police Homicide Investigators, the Police Forensics Lab Technicians, and the Nueces County Medical Examiner’s Office responded to gather information and evidence. Detectives gathered more information and have not found any obvious indication of cause of death and there was no indication that the death was caused by the criminal action of another person. Detectives are investigating the death as an unattended death which means the person died without observation by a medical physician. The Nueces County Medical Examiner’s Office will evaluate the man to determine a cause of death and certify whether the death was a homicide or not such as an accident or pre-existing medical condition.

Corpus  Christi Police Detectives would like to have all information about this case before arriving at a conclusion and ask anyone with any additional information to contact Detectives at 886-2600 during business hours to provide any additional details.
