RCAF Retired Posted August 9, 2022 Report Share Posted August 9, 2022 Hello everybody, I'm new to the board but not new to the area. For the past 8 years my wife and I have been spending 6 or 7 months in the Lake Chapala area to escape the Canadian winters. Yesterday I was contacted by the brother of Dennis McCann who you all knew as gringohombre. Dennis is my wife's cousin and his family had not heard from or been able to make contact with him for several weeks. They knew that we saw him often while we were in Mexico so they asked me if I could track him down. I was able to contact the family that Dennis rented his house from and learned that he had died sometime around 20 June but they were not able to give me any details. I'm trying to gather as much information as I can on behalf of his family. So, I have a few things I'm hoping somebody out there might be able to help me with or point me to where I can get the information. PM me if you think it more appropriate for some of this stuff. Does anyone know or heard how Dennis died? Does anyone have experience with an expat dying in Mexico with no local family? (Dennis was a Permanent Resident) What happens with the body? (cremated, held in the morgue?) Will there be a medical or police report that we can access? The family will be contacting the US Consulate in Guadalajara and I will give them Spencer McMullen's contact information in case they need his services. I don't know at this time what, if anything, Dennis's family is going to do but I do know that they will be contacting me with their questions so I'm just trying to prepare myself. Thanks for any help you can give me. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
