The partially decomposed body of a pensioner was on Monday afternoon found in his First Hill, Soesdyke-Linden Highway home. He was believed to have been murdered.
The dead man has been identified as Anthony Breedy, 60, of Lot 76-78 First Hill. His hands and feet were tied behind his back.
According to information received, the dead man’s body bore several marks of violence, including lacerations to the head, and his SUV was reported missing.
Guyana Times understands that the man lived alone and was not seen for several days. It was after a foul stench was detected by neighbours, the gruesome discovery was made.
They alerted members of the Community Policing Group who in turn contacted the Timehri Police Station. Crime scene experts have recovered several pieces of evidence as they continue their investigations.
One resident told Guyana Times that after the man’s SUV was not seen, they thought that he had left for the interior where he operated a business.
The house was reportedly ransacked thus leading investigators to believe that Breedy’s death might have stemmed from a robbery. Several persons have been questioned in connection with the discovery. The body was taken to the Lyken Funeral Home to await a post-mortem examination.
