The body of a male which was found in a canal along Carifesta Avenue, in the vicinity of Camp Ayangana, on Monday last is yet to be identified.
The Police have said the body is that of a male of African descent who apparently was in his late 30s. At time of the discovery, last Monday at about 06:00hrs, the body was shirtless and clad in black jeans.
‘A’ Division (Georgetown) Commander Leslie James said last Monday that the body bore marks of violence, which suggest that foul play was involved in the man’s demise.
The Police had sent out a notice seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the dead man. The body remains at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting identification and a post mortem examination.
Anyone with information that could lead to identification of the corpse is urged to contact the Guyana Police Force on telephone numbers 227-1611, 227-1149, 227-1270, 227-6940-9, 226-6221, 225-2694, 911, or the nearest Police Station.
