Dead Bagotstown man found in home was murdered— autopsy
A post-mortem performed on the body of 31-year-old Raoul Melville, whose body was discovered by his son on Thursday morning at his Lot 43 Norton Street Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara home revealed that the man was murdered.
The examination was performed by Government pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh at the Georgetown Public Hospital Mortuary, who gave the cause of death as brain haemorrhage due to multiple blunt trauma to the head.
According to reports, the man was last seen alive on Wednesday evening.
Based on information received, Melville was alone at his residence, and all doors to the premises had been secured from the inside.
However, when his son went to check on him on Thursday morning, he saw the western door of his father’s house open. The child then saw his father’s motionless body lying on the floor in the hall area.
The son immediately raised an alarm and the Police were contacted. Although there was no sign of forced entry, the Police have reported that the bedroom of the deceased was ransacked.
Up to press time, no arrests were made in connection with the murder. The Police are, however, searching the area for CCTV cameras in order to retrieve the footage.
