Further details have emerged relating to the death of a young man on San Antonio Paseo in the early hours of this morning.
Witnesses of the events have said that the young man killed was walking alone on the Paseo (beach promenade). Their version of events is that he picked a fight by goading a group of seven people, five men and two women. An earlier witness report said a minimum of three of the group were involved in beating the young man.
Conor Lee, Age 23
Police named the victim as Conor Lee. He was on holiday staying at the Bergatin Hotel, less than 10 minutes walk from the scene of his death. Conor was 23 years of age, not 20 as stated earlier.
Though detailed witness statements have been provided to the Police, they have said that the search for his assailants is ongoing. Police stated that until the results of an autopsy that could be completed as early as monday, they could not speculate on whether the blows Conor received were directly responsible for his death.
Time of Death
There is some ambiguity in the emergency services 061 report, as it states that his time of death was 3.30 a.m., but their emergency call was 4.00 a.m.
This may be a simple typo. Our eye witness reports state that he was receiving CPR at 4.30 a.m., and that the CPR lasted approximately 20 minutes.
