A 22-year-old man was on Sunday evening found dead with a gaping wound to his neck at a ball field located at Crane, West Coast Demerara (WCD).
He has been identified as Darrel James of Crane, WCD.
At the time, he was taking out a flock of sheep to graze.
Reports are that James was reportedly recently threatened by the stepfather and older brother of a young woman who he was courting. He was reportedly warned to stay away from the young woman, who resides in the same village.
Police have since launched an investigation.
