A pensioner was on Saturday discovered dead between two tombs at the Logwood Enmore Cemetery, located on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD).
Dead is 76-year-old Compton Lawrence of Lot 120 Logwood Enmore, ECD. The Guyana Police Force (GPF) stated that he died between Friday at about 13:00h and Saturday at about 07:30h.
Lawrence was last seen alive Friday at the cemetery consuming alcohol. At about 07:30h this morning, the 76-year-old man was seen lying face downwards between two tombs.
The police were summoned, and the body was examined, and what appeared to be bruises were seen about his face.
The body was escorted to the CC Nicholson Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The body then was escorted to Jerricks Funeral Home, awaiting a Post Mortem Examination (PME).
“Several persons were questioned in the area, but no additional information was received. Statement was taken and investigation in progress,” the GPF concluded.
