After trying to raise the man and receiving no response, Oretta said she peeped through a window and saw Lamazon lying on his bed. He was motionless. She said she immediately raised an alarm and neighbours came rushing over. They broke down the door and found him dead.

There were no marks of violence on the body nor were there signs of forced entry to the one-bedroom house which is attached to the snackette and bar he operated.

Lamazon had moved to the location from Bachelor’s Adventure about two months ago.
