Body found along Soesdyke/Linden Highway

Police are seeking to identify the partially decomposed body of a male of African descent which was discovered on Monday by a group of men at Long Creek, Soesdyke/Linden Highway.
Guyana Times understands that the man, said to be in his mid-30s, was found face down. The body was clad in a pair of black jeans, a white jersey and black and brown Sonoma slippers, while his hands were bound behind his back with a multicoloured rope.
Upon inspection of the body, Police ranks said it was difficult to identify any marks of violence, due to the stage of decomposition.
Based on reports received, at around 10:15h on Monday, a 27-year-old labourer, his brother-in-law and four other men were on their way to the backdam “to cut T shore wood” when they came across a foul stench.
They also noticed crows circling a specific area and upon searching, they discovered the body.
The corpse was taken to the Lyken Funeral Parlour where it awaits a post-mortem examination.
