The analysis by a Cameroonian pathologist claims the 24-year-old's death was the result of "brutal aggression" during a probable locker room attack. Cameroonian pathologist Andre Moune said that he found Ebosse had suffered upper body injuries that indicated "signs of struggle."

The official version holds that Ebosse died in hospital on August 23 from head injuries as he left the pitch under a hail of objects thrown from the stands following the 2-1 loss of Ebosse's JS Kabylie to Algiers club USMA.
