May his soul rest in peace. That is conditional though. Let this be a wake up call that anything can happen anytime we should make peace with God. Try as much as possible to live a godly life pleasing to God. Avoid wanton life sex beer stealing get rich schemes cheating etc.
To the authorities please conduct a postmortem.
