This collection of documents pertains to the death of Zenon Porto; he was a free Chinese settler in Cuba who owned his own fish frying business. The first document in this group is an announcement of his death on July 28, 1971, that was made by a Cuban police official. Within the same document, the official explained that an investigation and interrogation into the matters of his death would take place. Several records of the interrogations are included in this collection. Three Chinese settlers who were familiar with Zenon Porto including his brother Nicolas, and two neighbors- Domingo and Pedro, were interviewed to verify that Zenon Porto had died, and that he owned a fish frying business among other small matters. A subsequent investigation was initiated to learn if Zenon Porto had left a will, and no good leads were found to confirm that he did. Two of Zenon Porto's cedulas are also included in this group of documents. 1871
