Decomposing body found at Long Pond
The decomposing body of an African male was yesterday discovered floating in a canal at Long Pond on the West Bank Demerara and is still to be identified.
Sometime around 11am yesterday the supervisor of a privately owned sugar estate at Long Pond made the discovery. He said the smell was unbearable and he felt it was a dead animal. However he noticed the body in the canal and raised an alarm. Police had to use a boat to retrieve it.
