Controversies have continued to trail the unfortunate death of legendary Diego Maradona over six months down the lane.
The 60-year-old FIFA World Cup winner died last November after a suspected heart complication in his home country.
He had just returned home from the hospital a few days after undergoing brain surgery to remove blood colt but not much attention was given to him as far as recuperation was concerned.
Reports submitted to the prosecutors earlier this week claim the former Barcelona and Napoli forward was in agony for more than 12 hours without adequate treatment before he died.
The document also stated that had he been properly hospitalized in time, he would have escaped death back then.
According to NBC Los Angeles, no fewer than 20 doctors were commissioned to investigate what led to the Argentine's death for a period of two months, and the outcome complicates the defence of seven people already under investigation in the case.
Among those whose cases have been further complicated by the reports are his brain surgeon Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov - both of whom worked for Maradona.
Legit.ng previously reported that less than two months after Diego Maradona’s death, his personal doctor Leopoldo Luque was accused of deliberately forging his signature in a bid to access his personal records.
Documents showing someone is already practising the late legend’s signature were seen in several Argentinian news media according to SunSport.
It was alleged that the exhibits were found in the home of the doctor in Buenos Aires as Luque was personally in charge when the brain operation was carried out on the superstar weeks before he died.
