Law enforcement officials are currently questioning several persons in relation to the discovery of the lifeless body of a 25-year-old man, who was found in a pool of blood along the Zeeburg seawall, West Coast Demerara (WCD).

The dead man, who has since been identified as Andrew McCurchin of Zeeburg, WCD, reportedly worked at the docking area for fishing boats as they came in from the sea.

According to reports, the man was last seen by his girlfriend around 19:00h on Sunday evening heading in the direction of the Zeeburg seawall, but he never made his way back home.

However, at around 06:30h on Monday, the man’s motionless body was discovered lying in a pool of blood by a passerby.

Police were summoned to the scene and it was discovered that there were lacerations to the man’s head.

The body was escorted to the Leonora Cottage Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

INews understands that two pieces of wood with bloodstains were found in close proximity of the man’s body.

Investigations continue into the matter.
