Cuban Eliécer Ledesma disappeared on January 4 after visiting his father at the provincial hospital where he was admitted, with no information available after that.
An anonymous source informed the CyberCuba platform that Ledesma was “suffering from mental problems”, in addition to the condition of his hospitalized father.
The source confirmed the criminalistics information.
“Since January 4, when he set out to meet them, nothing was heard about him until yesterday when they found him… He threw himself into the river, he was missing for eight days. That’s why he was in such a bad state of decomposition,” he stressed.
According to the report, Eliécer Ledesma worked in the maintenance brigade of the Modesto Gómez Rubio Hospital, located in the municipality of San Juan y Martínez.
After her disappearance, some family and friends posted an image on social networks and asked for help to find her. There were no other clues until the tragic outcome.
