Buenos Aires, Jan 15 (IANS/EFE) The dismembered body of a 74-year-old British physicist and mathematician who went missing several months ago has been found in Argentina, police said.
Police found Donald Brooks’ body in Santiago del Estero province in northern Argentina. Brooks had been living there for several years.
The British embassy had recently expressed concern because Brooks had not been coming to collect his monthly pension.
Road workers later found Brooks’ head near the provincial highway, and police found more of his bodily remains at his house. His arms and legs were not found.
According to forensic reports, Brooks died around four months ago.
Police said there was no money at the victim’s home and some of his possessions were missing.
