Gregory Frank

A Kuru Kururu, Soesdyke-Linden Highway man was found dead in a pool of blood in his home yesterday morning and the police suspect he was killed during a burglary.

The dead man has been identified as Gregory ‘Wayne’ Frank, 46, a legal clerk of Lot 686 Kuru Kururu.

Police spokesman Jairam Ramlakhan, in a press statement, said Frank’s body, “with a swollen forehead,” was discovered about 4.30 am yesterday in the living room of his home.

The statement said the rear door to Frank’s home was found ajar and the entire house was ransacked. Valuables were also missing from the house.

Lavern Frank-Richardson said she learnt of her brother’s death through her stepfather. “Around 5.30 this morning, my stepfather went to take something to him and he called but no one answered. He noticed a window open and the door and he checked and found him lying in a pool of blood,” Frank-Richardson recalled.

The sister noted that her brother’s home was ransacked and two flat-screen televisions and other valuables were missing. She also noted that she was told a black cap and a drill were found in the yard.

“My brother is the gentlest person around and if you and he were in a dispute he would give you what you want.  He is that kind of person. I think he knew the people who attacked him, that’s why they killed him,” she stated, while pointing out that she believes that he was attacked on Tuesday night.

“He was found in his working clothes… I last spoke to him Tuesday. We speak everyday but I didn’t talk to him yesterday. I called his phones and both rang out. I thought he went to the Emancipation celebrations because he bought an outfit to go,” the sister responded when asked about the last time she spoke with her brother.

Frank worked as the legal clerk of Abiola Wong-Inniss at the McKay and Moore law office for the past 18 years.

He is survived by his father and four siblings.

An autopsy is expected to be performed today.
