Police are investigating the chopping death of an Arima man whose decomposing body was discovered yesterday.
The body of Kenzie Charles, 59 of Rose Street, which leads off Temple Street, was found around 9 am by a neighbour who went to investigate a foul stench coming from the house.
Senior officers were unable to say what the motive was behind Charles’s killing.
In an unrelated matter, the body of an East Indian woman found in an abandoned lot close to the Peas Tree Housing Development, Caura Road, El Dorado, on Saturday has been identified.
Officers yesterday confirmed that the woman was Poolandaye Singh, 44, of Stella Street, Curepe.
Singh’s body was found around 1 pm on November 2, by a young man riding a bicycle along a nearby track. There were severe chop wounds about the body.
Investigations are continuing into both incidents.
