The lifeless body of 72-year-old Philistine Franci also called ‘PI’ was pulled from the Essequibo River days after she was reportedly missing.
Franci of Karrau Village was last seen last Wednesday in her village. However, one day later, police reportedly received information about a body floating in the river.
As a result, a search party was formed to retrieve the body but it was not located.
Nevertheless, on Sunday at about 16:30h, the body was found floating face down in the vicinity of Hurakabra in the Essequibo River. Upon examination, the body was positively identified as that of Franci.
At the time, the body was clad in a burgundy skirt and a multicolored top. Police stated that due to the advanced state of decomposition, they were unable to determine if the body bore marks of violence.
The body was transported to Georgetown to facilitate a post-mortem examination.
