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.
