The body of a 30-year-old Lionel Messi fan, who went missing since his team lost to Croatia in the World Cup on Thursday, was found from a river on Sunday morning.
The body of Dinu Alex, who hailed from Arumanoor — a hamlet on the banks of River Meenachil near Kottayam — was found in the same river at Illikkal.
Alex had been missing ever since the Latin American team lost a group stage match to Croatia in the FIFA World Cup on Friday morning.
He left behind a suicide note in Malayalam that read: “Nothing is left in this World for me to watch. I am walking towards death… Nobody is responsible for my death.”
Alex, a bachelor, was shortlisted in some of the examinations of the State Public Service Commission and was awaiting recruitment.
