Police: Autopsy on immigrant reveals no foul play
An autopsy on the body of a Guatemalan immigrant found dead behind a Mount Kisco home Tuesday showed no signs of foul play, police say.
The partially clothed body of 37-year-old Emilio deJesus Buezo was discovered in his backyard at 103 Maple Ave. by a neighbor, who claimed Buezo had bruises and blood on his face.
But an autopsy conducted by the Westchester medical examiner found no evidence of violence contributing to his death.
Carola Otero Bracco, executive director of Neighbors Link, which provides community services to many immigrants in the area, says she is concerned about the incident.
"The feelings of everyone who comes here is the same as the rest of the community," Bracco says. "I think everyone is concerned about what might have happened."
Buezo is the latest immigrant to die in Mount Kisco under questionable circumstances. Some of the previous cases have been ruled homicides.
In April 2007, Rene Perez died after being found injured, lying on a road outside of town. Earlier this year, a local police officer was acquitted of all charges in connection with Perez's death.
In another case, the body of Santos Bojorquez was found behind a Verizon building.
So far, police do not have evidence of a crime in Buezo?s case, but the investigation continues. Authorities say additional lab tests need to be conducted in the next few weeks, and more witnesses in the case are expected to be interviewed.
