No arrests have been made in connection with the death of fish vendor Phulmattie Rami, police spokesman Ivelaw Whittaker said on Monday.
Rami’s semi-nude body was discovered floating in a canal at Cane Grove, Mahaica last Tuesday. Gold earrings had been ripped from her earlobes, while there were bruises on her back. A post-mortem examination later confirmed that she died of multiple injuries.
Crime Chief Seelall Persaud had told Stabroek News last week that the 68-year-old woman’s death was being treated as a murder. She was buried on Thursday last.
