By BBN Staff: Police Inspector Norman Benguche passed away on Saturday morning from natural causes.
The 43-year-old police veteran was hospitalized at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) after suffering a stroke last month.
He was sent home after treatment but his condition worsened last week, when he was rushed back to the KHMH.
Benguche reportedly suffered from hypertension and diabetes.
According to police sources, he was to have received an award later this month for completing 25 years of service with the department.
