Murder detectives are aiming to determine how a male, who inexplicably passed away in 2015, suffered the major head injury that killed him, City Authorities said Friday.
Christopher Rafidy was discovered unconscious on March 16 in the front backyard of a home in the 4400 block of Margarete Avenue, near Flamingo Road and Boulder Highway, cops said. He passed away at a healthcare facility in late May.
In an effort to attract leads, investigators are looking to speak with anybody who may have come across Rafidy in the minutes preceeding his hospitalization.
An examination uncovered that prior to Rafidy’s unconscious collapse, Metro officers had come across the 27-year-old near Nellis Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, which he was naked and bleeding from the head, police stated.
He refused medical treatment, and his family was called to pick him up, police said. Rafidy once again left your home to go to a nearby relative’s place to see about a flight to a health center, cops said.
It wasn’t right away clear where his or his member of the family’s house was, but he was last seen mindful as he walked on Mountain Vista Street, about 3 miles where he was found next.
