Police yet to positively identify victim
Body at Mahdia…
Police sources yesterday said that the man who was stabbed in the neck may not be missing South Ruimveldt resident Steve Caesar.
The police had reported that they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a man, so far identified as “Steve”, which occurred about 13:30 hrs Tuesday. According to sources the victim is of East Indian descent and worked as a mechanic in the Mahdia area.
Investigations revealed that the victim was being transported by vehicle from Black Water, Mahdia, suffering from a suspected stab wound to his neck. The man is reported to have succumbed to his injury during the journey.
A post mortem examination is expected to be done by the end of the week. Up to press time no one had come forward to make a positive identification.
There was the presumption that the dead man could have been Steve Caesar called “Mankind” who went missing on June 5.
Relatives reported to this newspaper on Saturday that Caesar had left his mother’s South Ruimveldt home on June 5, informing her that he was on his way to Charity, Essequibo.
Caesar was last seen wearing blue jeans, plaid shirt and a pair of brown sandals.
