Investigation ongoing into sudden death

Police said they are continuing their probe into the death of a George Town man who was found unresponsive outside his home on Shedden Road last week.

They named the man on Friday as 60-year-old Caymanian Linton Spence.

Police said there were no obvious signs of violence during a preliminary examination of Spence at the Cayman Islands Hospital.

No foul play is suspected.

According to a Royal Cayman Islands Police Service spokesman, at this stage in the investigation there is nothing to suggest foul play occurred.

“However, this is an open and active investigation, therefore that is subject to change depending on the direction the investigation takes,” the spokesman said.

He added, “This incident is, however, being investigated as a sudden death at this time.”
