Porters held for stealing dead man’s dentures

January 18, 2013 | By | Filed Under News 



A bizarre case involving the theft of a dead man’s dentures is engaging the attention of the police and has led to the arrest of two hospital porters.

Kaieteur News understands that the porters, who are contracted employees at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), were detained yesterday evening following the mysterious disappearance of an accident victim’s platinum dentures.

The victim, identified as Rudolph Anthony Ward called ‘Bald Head’, perished on Monday in a motorcycle crash at Houston, East Bank Demerara.

It is alleged that when Ward’s body was taken to the GPHC, two hospital attendants carried the corpse to the hospital mortuary. There, the porters allegedly ’dug out’ the dead man’s platinum teeth. One of the accused also reportedly took Ward’s ‘Cayenne’ belt.

However, following investigations, the porters were taken into custody and one of them reportedly admitted to using a nail to dig out the dead man’s teeth. He also implicated his colleague, while handing back the stolen belt to investigators.

They were still in custody at press time.
