New Medical Report Suggests Diego Maradona’s Death Linked to Cocaine

The criminal negligence case against eight medical professionals involved in the death of Argentine soccer icon Diego Maradona has been cast into doubt by a medical examiner’s report.

The research was ordered by Maradona’s neurosurgeon, Leopoldo Luque, who is one of the principal defendants, to refute the medical evaluation from 2021 that found him and other physicians guilty of Maradona’s preventable death.

According to the defendants, there was no wrongdoing or irregularity in Maradona’s treatment.

After undergoing brain surgery in 2020, Maradona had a heart attack and passed away. Argentina was in sorrow after his shocking and tragic death at the age of 60, which rocked a generation of soccer enthusiasts. Eight of the medical staff members were subsequently charged with homicide by the prosecution. This severe allegation has the potential for inferred intent and a possible jail term ranging from eight to twenty-five years.

On June 4, the trial is scheduled to begin.

According to a recent medical study by medical examiner Pablo Ferrari, Maradona’s irregular and fast heart rate might have been caused by either natural causes or anything “external,” such as a narcotic like cocaine.

Maradona’s brain surgery in November 2020 was after a long struggle with substance abuse.

Augustina Cosachov, who was Maradona’s psychiatrist, is one of eight individuals who will stand trial for the star’s murder.

The prosecution slammed the expert’s report, saying it was thrown up in a matter of days. They said Ferrari ignored four years’ worth of evidence in favor of a marginal slice of evidence offered by the defense.

Not long after Maradona passed away, authorities in Argentina began looking into possible foul play, including searching the homes of Maradona’s doctor and others who had a hand in his treatment.

The 2021 investigation found that if Maradona had gotten “adequate medical care,” he would have been more likely to survive.
