The three persons, who were found dead in a minibus which was stuck in a pothole along the Mabura Trail in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh on Monday conducted post-mortem examinations with dissections on the bodies of Leon Achee, Vincent Albert Fausett and Reva Bovell and concluded that they died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Forty-two-year-old Achee, the bus driver of Lot 245 Sixth Street, Martyr’s Ville, Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara; a 44-year-old Fausett, the operator of Lot 40 Plantation Ross, West Coast Berbice, and 24-year-old Bovell of South Amelia’s Ward, Linden were found in the minibus at about 09:40h on Sunday at 28 Miles, Mabura Trail.
Investigations revealed that the minibus, BAC 7350, was stuck in a deep pothole with its rear submerged. The vehicle’s engine was running, and all windows were locked at the time of discovery. Police suspect that the victims may have slept on the bus overnight. An examination of the bodies showed no visible marks of violence.
The bodies were handed over to relatives for burial/cremation.
