The second autopsy conducted on Melvyn Gomes is inconclusive as it opined that death could have been accidental or homicidal and pointed out that the death was caused due to drowning as mentioned in the first post mortem report.
The second autopsy was conducted by a team of doctors of Goa Medical College after Melvyn’s family members demanded it and refused to conduct the final rites till it was done.
His family members and locals refused the police contention that his death was accidental. Melvyn was found dead in a pit dug to construct a toilet at Utorda following which police had registered a case of unnatural death.
Locals accused three security guards posted at the site of murdering Melvyn particularly since all three have fled from the place following the death.
