Body of man found fatally injured in Westbourne stairwell is repatriated
A LITHUANIAN man found fatally injured in a stairwell in Westbourne has made his final journey home.
Jevgenij Pisciuliov’s body was repatriated on Thursday and his family are in the process of arranging his funeral.
The 32-year-old was found in the communal area of two flats above a chemist in Poole Road, Westbourne, on Saturday September 22 suffering with serious chest and head injuries. He died later that day in Southampton General Hospital.
A post mortem examination gave the cause of death as subdural haemorrhage.
Dorset Police launched a murder investigation following Mr Pisciuliov’s death and arrested a 37-year-old Bournemouth man on suspicion of murder.
He was subsequently released without charge following a number of days of questioning.
DI Marcus Hester, leading the investigation, said: “The circumstances surrounding the death are still being looked into to establish exactly what, if any offences, have taken place.”
He added that enquiries into how Mr Pisciuliov came to receive serious head and chest injuries are continuing and they are still awaiting the results of forensic tests, which are expected to take a number of months.
Mr Pisciuliov was a Lithuanian national living in Poole at the time of his death and was discovered seriously injured by a neighbour.
Ullas Patel, owner of Arrowledge Retail Chemists and the two flats upstairs, was at work when the neighbour called for help. He said he found Mr Pisciuliov with his head against the skirting board and his legs were on a small two-step flight of stairs on the first floor.
