Swedish man found dead in city hotel after suspected heroin overdose

A Swedish man was on Sunday found dead while kneeling down half naked in a city hotel.

The 32 year-old man, identified as Hamason Augusto, was found in his room at Blue Hut hotel in Ngara with his head and both hands rested on the bed, his right hand still holding a syringe whose needle was bent.

The hotel’s manager called the police at 6pm after the man was found unconscious in his room.

The man was supposed to check out earlier in the day and the hotel’s staff grew concerned after the room remained locked throughout the day.

Police officers who arrived at the scene conducted a search and recovered three sachets of a white powder substance suspected to be heroin.

The body was then moved to City Mortuary for autopsy.
