The body of Generoso Gonçalves da Conceição, 66, was found floating in the waters of the Taquari River this Thursday afternoon (16), in Coxim, a city 253 kilometers from Campo Grande.
After visualizing the victim, a fisherman jumped into the water and tied the elderly man’s body to the river bank, until the Fire Department arrived.
From the scene, Generoso was sent to the IML (Medical Institute of Forensic Odontology) where the autopsy indicated that the victim may have died of natural causes.
The initial suspicion is that the resident fainted and fell into the riverbed while he was in Praça do Flutuante in front of the São José Cathedral. With the fall he ended up hitting his head and drowned.
The body was found about 5 kilometers from the square. Beloved among the city’s Catholic community, Generoso Gonçalves was born in Santo Antonio do Leveger, Mato Grosso, but had adopted Coxim as his home for years.
