The decomposed body which was discovered by two children yesterday afternoon has been identified as Robin Gordon of Lot 2273 Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara (WBD).
Reports are that the 40-year-old man’s body was found in a trench about 10 meters from his house.
Gordon’s brother stated that he usually leaves home early in the mornings to head to work and would return late in the evenings hence he was only aware of his brother’s demise when relatives telephoned him to notify him of the tragic incident.
The dead man’s sister, Samantha Gordon related that the man, who is an alcoholic, had left home since Wednesday, and failed to return home. He was an epileptic.
However, this was not unusual since he would usually stay away from his home for days, she said.
“He usually leaves and does come back days after… That’s his usual style, he leaves home and doesn’t come back for days,” Samantha explained.
Presently, it is unclear as to how Gordon met his demise and the family has maintained that they will not speculate his cause of death. However, relatives of the now dead man noted that the drains in that area were recently cleared and expanded thus making them ‘quite deep.’
Gordon leaves to mourn his 22-year-old son, his elderly father and siblings. His body is currently at the Ezekiel Funeral Home awaiting a post mortem.
Investigations into the matter continue.
