Argentine police are now treating the death of football legend Diego Maradona as manslaughter.
Several media reports said on Sunday that detectives raided the home of his personal doctor, Dr Leopoldo Luque.
Maradona, 60, died on Wednesday at his home in Buenos Aires.
Argentine prosecutors have been sanctioned by a judge and are now trying to determine whether Maradona was the victim of medical negligence.
According to some reports, Maradona had fought with her doctor in the days leading up to her death from heart failure.
According to the UK Sun, the searches were ordered after the soccer icon’s daughters, Dalma and Giannina, made statements that questioned whether the medication their father was receiving was appropriate.
Now Luque is the subject of an official negligence investigation. However, there is no indication that he will be charged with a crime.
Maradona’s legal eagles demand that an investigation be opened into his death. They say the ambulance took more than 30 minutes to reach the stricken star and that he did not receive any medical checks in the 12 hours before his death.
His nurse allegedly lied about his surveillance.
Maradona has played for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Newell’s Old Boys during his career.
He scored 34 goals in 91 appearances for Argentina before retiring from professional football in 1997.
