A post mortem examination conducted on the remains on Friendship, East Bank Demerara contractor, Carlos Persaud, 31, has revealed that he died from shock and haemorrhage due to gunshot wounds.
The post mortem was preformed yesterday at the Georgetown Mortuary by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh.
Meanwhile, police sources have said that they have not got any new leads into the matter. Up to press time the police did not make any arrests.
Persaud’s body was found by a drug addict in the Le Repentir Cemetery with four gunshot wounds on Saturday morning.
His car, a blue Toyota 212, was recovered in “C” Field Sophia after police were tipped off by residents.
Persaud, a father of a seven-year-old girl, was said to be the owner of a number of trucks contracted to the Guyana Power and Light Inc and ECI, an electrical contracting company also from Friendship.
Relatives of Persaud had filed a missing person’s report on Friday after he failed to return home.
Relatives had disclosed that Persaud left home shortly after 17:00hrs, Friday, to buy supplies for a little shop.
In addition to the trucks, the family runs an Internet café and little shop.
“He had two beers with me before he left and I tell him we will continue later because we did not want him drive like that,” another close neighbour disclosed.
Family members did not take much notice and spoke to him around 21:00hrs when Persaud promised to be home shortly.
Later, as the hours passed, several calls were made to Persaud’s cell phone but he did not answer.
