David Francis

Laid-off Centrin worker suspected of suicide, might have been murdered

Police are now saying the suspected suicide of a former Centrin worker may now very well be a case of murder.

The funeral service for 48-year-old David Francis was scheduled to take place today but was postponed until tomorrow. 

The former Centrin worker was found hanging at his Carli Bay house and relatives and the union believed he took his life because he was depressed. 

But Couva police officers and relatives say based on the autopsy report another post-mortem has been ordered and there is a suspicion of foul play based on how Francis was discovered.
