Police yesterday retrieved the decomposing remains of a woman from a South Ruimveldt house.
The victim, believed to be a destitute, was found in a room of the house, which is located behind the building that was once the South Ruimveldt Shopping Plaza. Kaieteur News understands that detectives observed traces of blood near the corpse, but were unable to ascertain how the victim died because of the decomposing state of the remains.
According to reports, the body was found at around noon by a man who is said to be the caretaker of the property.
Kaieteur News understands that police are questioning the caretaker and also took possession of some of the man’s clothing.
One woman told Kaieteur News that since last week they were “getting a funny scent” in the area, but didn’t recall hearing or seeing anything out of the ordinary. She said that she was told that the body resembles someone who would wander around the community.
The woman further told Kaieteur News that the “caretaker” of the property works at a funeral home and was not always around.
“Four years now I’m living here but I’ve never see anybody coming to him” the neighbour told Kaieteur News. The woman further told Kaieteur News that the community located behind the former Shopping Plaza, is very desolate and they would hardly see a strange face.
“The gate to the house is always locked so it’s unknown how she gained access to the house” the woman said.
Kaieteur News understands that the “caretaker” told investigators that he was washing yesterday morning and when he “got a funny scent”.
The man said that he started checking around the property and he discovered the woman’s body in a back room. The caretaker lives in a small room that is adjacent to the house in which the body was found. Up to press time the body has not been identified. The body was taken to the Lyken Funeral Home.
