-autopsy suggests

An autopsy yesterday confirmed that Osafo Glasgow, the man who was discovered dead at Loo Creek, Soesdyke-Linden Highway on Sunday morning, died as a result of multiple injuries consistent with a vehicular accident.

This is according to police spokesman Jairam Ramlakhan, who yesterday told Stabroek News that the autopsy determined that Glasgow sustained multiple injuries, including a broken neck, which is suspected to have been caused by a heavy impact consistent with that of a vehicular accident.

There was no sign of sexual activity, he noted.

The autopsy was performed yesterday morning by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh at the Georgetown Public Hospital mortuary.

Stabroek News had previously reported that the lifeless body of Glasgow, called ‘Safo’, 41, of 94 Bagotville, West Bank Demerara was discovered on Sunday at around 7 am by a passerby.

The police had said they believed that Glasgow was a victim of a hit-and-run as pieces of plastic fragments, suspected to be that of a vehicle light, were seen on the road next to the body.

The area in which the accident occurred is isolated and the closest community is approximately three miles away, the police added.

Less than a day after the discovery, Glasgow’s mother, Esther Pierre, had positively identified his remains. She had reportedly informed the police that he had been mentally challenged and suffered from epilepsy.
