It was a tram driver, who first noticed the man slumped by a wall on the corner of the Koningsstraat and the Paleizenplein, outside the palace where King Filip has his office.

The tram driver alerted the police. In the course of the morning the public prosecutor's office dispatched a police doctor to the scene to try and establish the exact cause of the man's death.
