Police have started a murder investigation into the death of a man whose body was burnt in a house fire in La Brea village Guyaguayare.

The incident took place last Friday, but an autopsy shows that the man, 39-year-old Rajesh Rudolpho, was beaten to the head and was deliberately trapped in the burning building.

Investigators say the doors to the house were blocked from the outside which supports the theory that this was a murder.
