Battered body of homeless man found behind bus park at Linden

A homeless man was yesterday morning found dead behind the Linden-Georgetown bus park in the mining town.

The destitute identified by the police as Andrew Dey called “Mafia’, 49 years was said to have been murdered elsewhere and dumped behind the park.

A woman said that around 6 am yesterday, as she was on her way to open her shop, she saw two councillors standing near the badly battered body behind the park.

The woman said they then attempted to contact the police but before they could have done that, they saw a mobile patrol and summoned them to the scene. The body was removed at around 8 am and taken to the Wismar Mortuary.

According to police investigations, the man was possibly murdered between 18:00 hrs on Tuesday and early yesterday morning.

Investigations revealed that the man was sodomised and beaten as his body bore several marks of violence and a broken bottle was inserted into his rectum.

The man’s pants were pulled to his knees and there were several stab wounds on his buttocks. The man also had wounds about his head and the police removed the suspected weapon, a piece of wood, from the scene.

“It was terrible to look at,” the woman said, as she related the story to Stabroek News.

“I ain’t know why anyone would do something like duh to the man, he neva trouble nobody,” a man said. “He does always keep to he self unlike them other junkie,” the man continued in a state of disgust over the incident.

Another man who knew the deceased told Stabroek News that the man and his family migrated to the US some years ago and a few years back he was deported back to Guyana.

“All a we grow up together before he and he family move away,” the man said. “I ain’t see he round for about a month.”

It is unclear whether the dead man’s family has been contacted.

Investigations are ongoing.
