Norton Street man beaten to death
- body dumped in Le Repentir Cemetery
Investigations are continuing into the murder of a 36-year-old man, whose body was found dumped at the back of the old Georgetown Incinerator. Dead is Keith Bowen of 51 Norton Street, Lodge. Police sources said that the body was found shortly after midday, and from all appearances Bowen was badly beaten.
Sylvia Kishore, the dead man’s mother told Kaieteur News yesterday that she received the news of his death sometime around lunch.
“Someone called me and said they find my son body in de burial ground…so I rushed to see,” Kishore said. She was accompanied by her daughter and they made the positive identification. Relatives admitted that Bowen was a habitual drug user. They said that there are reports that Bowen was beaten after he was accused of stealing several pieces of scrap metal from a Norton Street Scrap metal shop.
Up to press time no one was arrested, but investigators are closely monitoring a prime suspect. Bowen leaves to mourn his mother, father and nine other siblings.
