Raimund Kobler (Koessler), a German attorney who had been living on the island of San Pedro for about 5 years, was found dead inside an unfinished building under construction. Police say that he suffered blunt force trauma to the head, and that makes his death a murder that they have to solve.

His body was discovered on Monday, November 6, 2017, some time after 6 a.m., at the construction site, which is located on Cocoplum Street, San Pedro. The construction workers showed up to resume their job, only to find him lying down on the first floor. They called in the cops who processed the scene, and discovered that he had suffered an injury to the head. They have no idea what weapon was used to inflict that injury, or who did it, but they believe he was clubbed over the head.

He was reportedly last seen by his landlord at his residence at around 10 p.m. on Sunday, November 5. The landlord told police that they had a conversation, and he left Kobler on the verandah. The landlord retired for the evening, and that was the last time he saw Kobler alive.

It is unknown why he left the compound of his apartment area, but he ended up at that construction site, which is a few blocks from his home. Residents in the area told the press that they heard the sounds of a disturbance coming from the building, but looking out from windows, no one saw anything. A man was reportedly seen leaving the area with what looked like a bat in hand.

Police have no idea why Kobler was killed, and they are investigating at this time. Neighbors tell the press that he lived a quiet life in San Pedro, and he was rarely seen on the street, except when he was running errands.
