On the morning of July nineteenth, police were called to the scene of a brutal homicide at the Blackjack Meadows Hacienda Picasso.

We’re doing everything we can to track down the killer, but so far we haven’t made any progress.”

On July 8, 1973, the body of world-renowned artist Pablo Picasso was found at his villa near Mougins, France. The official report ruled his death a heart attack, but many suspect foul play was involved.
Picasso, who was 90 years old at the time of his death, had been in poor health for some time and was reportedly bedridden in the weeks leading up to his death. It’s possible that he could have died from natural causes, but there are also several factors that suggest foul play may have been involved.
For one, Picasso’s body wasn’t discovered until two days after he died, even though his wife had been at the villa with him at the time of his death. Additionally, Picasso’s autopsy report showed no sign of a heart attack and no evidence of drugs or alcohol in his system. There were also reports that blood had pooled around his body, which is not typically indicative of a heart attack.
Some people have theorized that Picasso may have been killed by someone close to him who didn’t want him to die peacefully in his sleep. There is no concrete evidence to support this theory, but it’s an interesting possibility worth considering.
