Body found in forest last year identified
A body which was found at the end of December last year in a forest near Kirchberg in canton Sankt Gallen has been identified.
Police say the man was a 44-year-old Guatemalan who was in Switzerland on a tourist visa. Apparently, he was a drug courier as he had swallowed packages of cocaine which had broken and poisoned him.
The body was naked and wrapped in a plastic bag.
Despite Sankt Gallen police sending a picture of the man and his fingerprints to police forces across the world, it’s taken this length of time to get an answer.
Police say a man has been arrested.
