The Police are investigating the circumstances behind the death of two Berbicians whose bodies were both found on Wednesday.

Dead: Mangalram Chetram

Dead are 47-year-old Mangalram Chetram of Reliance Village, East Canje, Berbice whose body was discovered with a wound to his head at his said address and 73-year-old Ramdai Samnarine called “Aunty Pato”, of Lot 695 Number One Road, Albion Berbice whose body was discovered floating in the Albion Estate Drainage Canal.

According to reports, Chetram who is said to be an alcoholic and who suffers from epilepsy, was seen early on Wednesday being lifted home by his son.

From indications, the man was reportedly intoxicated and he reportedly had fallen on the roadway.

However, he was carried home and placed to lie under his house. Hours later, he was observed by neighbours to be lying in the said position and an alarm was raised.

Upon inspections, it was observed that the man had a wound to his forehead and was not breathing.
