Body found outside GDF Headquarters still unidentified
One week after being discovered by passers-by in the canal outside the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Headquarters on Carifesta Avenue, a body is yet to be identified.
The Police have said the body is that of a male of African descent who apparently had been in his late 30s. At time of the discovery, last Monday at about 06:00h,
the body was shirtless and clad in black jeans.
‘A’ Division (Georgetown) Commander Leslie James said last Monday that the
body bore marks of violence, which suggest that foul play was involved in the man’s demise.
The Police had sent out a notice seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the dead man. The body remains at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting identification and a post mortem examination.
Anyone with information that could lead to identification of the corpse is urged to contact the Guyana Police Force on telephone numbers ?227-1611?, ?227-1149?, ?227-1270?, ?227-6940-9?, ?226-6221?, ?225-2694?, 911, or the nearest Police Station.
