A post mortem examination conducted yesterday on the body of murdered security guard Ronald Cato revealed that he died by strangulation and was also hit in his head with a blunt object.
The autopsy was done at the Georgetown Public Hos-pital by government pathologist Dr. Nehaul Singh.
Cato’s wife, Jacqueline, told Stabroek News yesterday that the funeral has been set for next Friday and the cost is being handled by her husband’s employer. She said that investigators told her that a man had been held and they are looking for two others.
The woman added that the police have since told her that no evidence of sexual abuse was found during yesterday examination.
Meanwhile, a senior police official said investigations are continuing into the matter.
According to reports, Cato, 44, of Lot 58 Non Pareil, ECD was found in the security hut at Section C, Enterprise by the ‘checker’ girl around 6:30am on Tuesday. The man was lying on his belly and his hands and feet were tied with pieces of his sheet. There was also a piece of cloth around his neck and one of his eyes was swollen.
Before leaving, the perpetrators removed two batteries each from a lorry, an excavator and a grader that were parked nearby. During the incident, the man’s pants were reportedly removed and the word “Gaza” was written on a nearby wall. An empty condom packet was found near the body.
