Man in Crash Died of Blunt Force Trauma


Dr. Aurelio Espinola ruled Moses Miksen’s death a homicide.

Guam – The victim who Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola declared died of a homicide is believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run early Sunday morning, but does not appear to have died as a result of the crash.


Guam Police Spokesman Officer AJ Balajadia says at 4 am Sunday, a hit and run auto collision was reported in Ysengsong, Dededo. The victim in that case was not injured.

About an hour later, police were called to a possible crash with a fatality in Liguan Terrace. However, after assessing the situation, police later reclassified the second case to an injured person report.

The victim in the second case has been identified as Moses Miksen. Police now believe that Miksen was a passenger in the hit and run on Ysengsong Rd.

However, Dr. Espinola has told PNC that Miksen did not die as a result of the crash. Espinola believes that Miksen was either punched or kicked in the abdomen. Dr. Espinola classified Miksen’s death a homicide.
