(Trinidad Guardian) A month after he was kidnapped, police believe they have finally found the body of car dealer Sheldon Sukhdeo.
Around 1 pm on Tuesday, officers went to an area at Las Lomas #2 and found a decomposed corpse.
It appeared to be Sukhdeo as the corpse bore a tattoo on the right arm which resembled Sukhdeo’s.
However, officers said they will only positively identify the corpse when a dental and DNA assessment is done.
A source said the body was found close to the workplace of a Spanish speaking woman who shared a close relationship with Sukhdeo.
The 32-year-old man was driving his BMW X-5 headed north along the Solomon Hochoy Highway when he was kidnapped.
A $2 million ransom was demanded, but no money has been paid by his family.
His mother and brother spoke to him three days after his abduction. Statements were taken from three men who were with Sukhdeo at the time of his abduction.
Sukhdeo was the brother of slain multi-millionaire real estate and car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo who was killed on March 26 last year.
Following Sheron’s death, his wife Rachael Sukhdeo named a close family member as being involved in the death. She has since left the country along with her two children. Two weeks after Sheron’s killing, his brother in law Phillip Bassant, Rachael’s brother was gunned down at Mahabir Avenue, Caroni Savannah Road, Charlieville.
Sheron Sukhdeo’s neighbour, Joshua Plaza, 21, who was blamed for the murder, was also killed on April 22.
On May 14, Sheron’s right-hand man Erwin Beckles was shot dead on May 14.
