He was naked, in the Jacuzzi and slightly decomposed. But police say there’s nothing suspicious about the death of a man on the Bahamas estate of hedge fund billionaire Louis Bacon.
Dan Tuckfield was found at Bacon’s home in the exclusive Lyford Cay neighborhood two weeks ago. According to his death certificate, he died just a half-hour before police found him on May 2, but there were still “signs of decomposition.” Still, following an autopsy, the 54-year-old’s death was ruled the result of natural causes—coronary artery disease.
Despite the unusual state of the body, police say there’s nothing about the death of Tuckfield, who reportedly lived on a houseboat docked at a marina on the Moore Capital Management chief’s estate.
“It may be that the case is closed because the obvious is the obvious,” Hulan Hanna, assistant police commissioner, told The Nassau Guardian. “It’s reasonable to conclude that the investigation is complete.”
According to the Guardian, Tuckfield’s body was autopsied the day after it was found, and then cremated and flown out of the country by a relative the following day.
