A farmer was on Tuesday found hanging from the rafters of his Lovely Lass Village, West Coast Berbice (WCB) home with his hands tied behind his back.
The dead man has been identified as 25-year-old Rohit Devnarine, who resided in an isolated area in the village. It was reported that neighbours noticed the door to the man’s house was slightly ajar but there were no signs of movement inside.
However, the neighbours, after not seeing the man, went to the house and it was then the gruesome discovery was made. Based on reports gathered, the man was fully dressed, but his hands were tied behind his back which raised suspicions that he might have been murdered.
The now dead man’s mother recalled seeing her son late Monday evening when he visited her Number 22 Village, WCB home. During his visit, the woman could not recall her son looking depressed or as if something was bothering him. She described her son as a cheerful person.
The body is at the Fort Wellington Hospital Mortuary awaiting a post-mortem. Devnarine leaves to mourn his son, seven siblings, and parents.
Police are continuing their investigations.
