[www.inewsguyana.com] – The police are still waiting for persons to come forward and identify the badly decomposed headless remains of a male which was found on September 22 by Public Works employees while clearing a cemetery at Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown.
Additionally, the police have not given permission for any post-mortem examination (PME) to be performed on the body which remains at city parlour.
Police sources close to the investigation said that they are unable to perform any post mortem on the body since it is yet to be identified. iNews was also reliably informed that there are no immediate plans to send any body samples for testing overseas.
On the day of the discovery, the skull reportedly belonging to the remains was found a short distance away in a plastic bag on the lawns of a private property, while the partly clothed remains was found between a clump of bushes with several of its bones scattered.
Investigators told iNews back then that the person may have been killed and dumped at the location even as car mat was discovered close to the body and the hands were bound. Crime Chief, Leslie James when contacted by iNews today, Monday, October 13, said the matter is still being investigated.
