Employees found the man’s body – an electrician – at Suempol factory in Bielsk Podlaski, Poland.

A 61-year-old man’s body was discovered bloodied and bruised in one of Poland’s largest salmon smoking facilities in on the 18th of June, reports Fakt.

“There are no witnesses to the event. Nobody saw what happened,” Bielsk Podlaski’s head of District Prosecutor’s Office Adam Naumczuk told the publication.

A post-mortem examination was carried out which did not explicitly explain the cause of death. “There were visible traces of blood and minor abrasions on the body of the deceased,” explained Podlaski.
