Diego Maradona’s death will be investigated by Argentinian police to decide whether it was a case of medical negligence, reports said quoting judicial sources.

Recordings from neighbourhood security cameras have been requested by three prosecutors working on the case.

Maradona died of ‘acute lung edema and chronic heart failure’, according to a preliminary autopsy report, in his sleep at noon while resting at his home in Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 25.

His laywer, Marias Morla, had earlier called for an investigation into claims ambulances took more than half an hour to reach the football star’s home in response to a call on the day of his death.

Recordings from neighbourhood security cameras have been requested by three prosecutors working on the case.

The prosecutor’s office in Buenos Aires has opened a file entitled ‘Maradona, Diego. Determination of the cause of death.’

“The case was initiated because he is a person who died at home and no one signed his death certificate. It does not mean there are suspicions or irregularities,” a judicial source said, requesting to remain anonymous.

The 60-year-old Argentine football legend was receiving round-the-clock medical care at a house in a gated community where he was recuperating from surgery to remove a clot on his brain in early November.

“The nurse made a statement when the prosecutor appeared on the day of Diego’s death, then expanded her statement and finally went on television to say that what she said was forced on her, so there is some contradiction in her statement,” a relative said.

The prosecutor’s office is awaiting the results of toxicological tests on Maradona’s body. The three prosecutors working on the case have requested the star’s medical records.

Another nurse caring for Maradona was likely the last person to see the star alive, at dawn on Wednesday, prosecutors said in a statement on November 27.
