BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Argentine police searched the home and office of Diego Maradona’s personal doctor on Sunday as part of investigations into the death of the 60-year-old football star, which has caused a wave of grief throughout the country.

Journalists saw several police officers stationed at the door of the offices of neurologist Dr Leopoldo Luque in the Belgrano neighborhood of Buenos Aires.

Court investigators have taken statements from relatives of Maradona, according to a statement from the San Isidro prosecutor’s office, which is overseeing an investigation into the medical treatment Maradona received before her death on Wednesday.

He said investigators were trying to secure Maradona’s medical records.

Maradona was buried Thursday in a private ceremony attended by only two dozen people following a vigil at the presidential palace where tens of thousands of crying fans lined up to walk past his coffin.

Maradona died of a heart attack at a house outside of Buenos Aires where he was recovering from brain surgery on November 3. He had suffered from a long series of medical problems, some related to excessive drug and alcohol use.
