The partially decomposed body of a female of mixed race suspected to be in her late 30’s was discovered on Tuesday evening on the western side of the Foulis Seawall Access Road, East Coast Demerara.
According to information received, the discovery was made by a 40-year-old mini-bus driver who went to the said access road to dispose of an old mini-bus shell and while he was reversing, he noticed the body lying motionless.
Police reports indicate that the man immediately drove out of the dam and flagged down a police anti-crime patrol to report the matter.
The woman’s body was found facing upwards, dressed in a blue top, brown and black bra, blue jeans and a pair of light blue underwear.
INews understands that the unidentified woman’s pants and underwear were partly pulled down, while her shirt was pulled up half way. In addition, a yellow metal chain was found around the deceased’s neck.
A pair of multicoloured slippers were found about 5 feet east of the body along with a burgundy cloth hammock.
Police have confirmed that the skin on both of the woman’s arms were torn and froth was seen on the mouth and nose.
The deceased is now at the Lyken’s Funeral home awaiting identification.
Investigations are continuing and according to police “it is uncertain what happened to her at this point.” (Ramona Luthi)
