Man, 28, dies after casting vote

A 28 –year-old man identified as Lawrenzo Toe is reported dead after casting his vote in Tuesday’s Presidential and Representative elections in Electoral District #3, Maryland County, southeastern Liberia.

The New Dawn correspondent in the county says the late Lawrenzo, a farmer and resident of Boniken met his demise while on his way home when he fell in a creek and drowned subsequently.

Family members speaking to this paper however regret the situation and say they leave everything with God, if it is his will.

Meanwhile, information gathered from the town indicates while the deceased was on his way to the voting center, he consumed alcoholic beverages to an extent that he could not maintain balance, while walking.

Sources explain that a coroner jury was set up to view the body, which subsequently reported no foul play, but notes that the deceased died as a result of drowning in the river.
