A previously healthy 31 year old African male was assisting
friends with the repair of the roof of a neighboring house.
That evening at a social gathering the man complained of an
apparent headache and went home early where he later died
suddenly and unexpectedly. No history indicating the possibility
of an underlying psychiatric illness was obtained.
Due to the nature and circumstances surrounding the sudden
unexpected death the body was referred for a medico-legal
investigation in terms of the Inquests Act 58 of 1959.
