Argentine police have launched an investigation into the death of former footballer, Diego Maradona. Less than four days after Diego Maradona’s death, Police have raided his doctor’s home in an attempt to find out if there were any irregularities involved in the death of the former football legend.
This comes after his daughters reportedly demanded to know what medication their father was taking prior to his unfortunate death. Police in Argentina have now raided Diego Maradona’s doctor’s home and clinic as well.
On Sunday, several officers were seen stationed outside the house of neurologist Dr Leopoldo Luque in Buenos Aires. Luque defended his treatment of Maradona and told reporters he had given investigators all records of his treatment.
Growing tearful, Luque defended his treatment of the former world cup winner who died last Wednesday.
“I know what I did. I know how I did it…. I am absolutely sure that I did the best for Diego, the best I could,” he said. The doctor added that he was not Maradona’s chief physician, but part of a medical team.
