As reported in ANI  the deceased was last seen watching the World Cup match between Argentina and Croatia on Thursday, in which Argentina which is on a brink of getting eliminated from the soccer tournament lost by three goals.

He then went missing from home after which his family members filed a missing complaint. Following this, the police launched a search operation to find him.

The police recovered a suicide note from Alex's room which read, "Nothing is left for me to see in this world. I am leaving... Nobody is responsible for my death."

In one of his books, Alex had written: "Messi, my life is for you, waiting to see you lift the cup." In another: "My team is starting its journey, carrying my life. I will do it."

Alex was a chemistry graduate and was working as an accountant with a private firm.

Recently, a football crazy fan from the state cycled all the way to Russia to watch the tournament and realise his dream of meeting Argentina's living legend Lionel Messi.
