TWO weeks after being involved in a fight over a woman, 97-year-old Josiah Hudson Downes has died from the injuries suffered in the brawl.
An autopsy performed by Dr Hubert Daisley found that Downes suffered blunt force trauma to his head and chest and he developed a pulmonary embolism.
Downes, of Centeno Street, died at the San Fernando General hospital.
On July 15, Downes was at the home of a 48-year-old woman at Southern Main Road, Rousillac, when an ex-lover came to the house.
Downes and the man argued and fought, Mohammed told police.
Several days later, Downes complained of feeling unwell and sought treatment at the San Fernando General Hospital.
He remained in hospital for 11 days, and was then discharged.
On July 31, Mohammed went to Downes' home and found him unconscious, lying naked on the floor of his bedroom.
He was again taken to hospital and detained. On Wednesday he died.
Police said yesterday that further consultation was needed with the pathologist to gather more information on the cause of death.
The Homicide Division (South) is investigating the case.
