Home News Decomposed body of Cane Grove man found in sheep pen
The decomposed body of a Cane Grove, East Coast Demerara (ECD) resident was found in a sheep pen at Rotterdam, West Coast Demerara (WCD), on Monday.
The body has been identified as that of 50-year-old Ramkarran Ramnarine of Virginia Village, Cane Grove, ECD. Reports are Ramnarine was discovered at about 10:00h by his employer.
Based on reports, earlier in the month, the now dead man and his employer left Cane Grove and ventured out to the Rotterdam backlands, WCD, where they would usually cultivate rice. Ramnarine was at the time employed as a farmer.
According to the man’s employer, he had left Ramnarine at the backlands to look over the crops when he left for home the said day. He alleged that he has been in constant contact with the man, and last spoke to him about four days before the discovery.
He revealed that sometime last week, he thought something was amiss after telephone calls to the now dead man’s number went unanswered. As a result, he decided to visit the area to check on him.
Upon his arrival, he made several checks but Ramnarine was nowhere to be seen. The employer told Police that he decided to check around the sheep pen and it was there he found the decomposing body.
He immediately raised an alarm and a report was made at the Sister’s Village Police Outpost. Guyana Times was informed that due to the decomposed state of the man’s body, Police were unable to detect any marks of violence.
The body is currently at the Bailey’s Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem as Police launched an investigation.
