Linden was yesterday plunged into shock after news spread of the murder of a worker
attached to the Bosai Bauxite Plant
The man who was identified as Edgar Trotman, worked as an excavator operator, with Bosai. He was found dead early yesterday morning with his hands tied behind his back. Trotman was forty- five years old and lived alone at 690 Block 22 Wismar.
He was the father of six.
The man’s body was reportedly discovered shortly after dawn, as workers for the morning shift were about to begin their day’s work. Trotman had been working the night shift, and it was to be his last night before his shift changed. His body was found a short distance away from the excavator he was reportedly operating.
His body bore several marks of violence, according to informed sources.
Trotman’s eldest daughter Olivia Trotman, a nurse attached to the Linden hospital said that she had just reported for duty yesterday morning when she received a call from a doctor that her mother was on the ground floor asking for her.
“When I went to her, she told me to sit down, so I said what happened, and she told me that she had received a call that daddy was killed. From what we were told, my father was hit in the head, and his hands were tied behind his back, and he was thrown into a nearby trench.
However, when I went out to the scene, the hearse had already taken him away, so I didn’t get to see him.”
All of Trotman’s relatives are in a state of shock over the murder, and have maintained that they knew of no grievance he may have had with anyone.
“He was a very jovial person, and got along well with people, so I don’t know of any reason why anyone might have wanted to have him killed,” his brother Orrin Trotman said.
The man said that his brother had been working at Bosai for about seven years. “For me and my family this is very shocking because my brother was very easy going, and had no problems with anybody.
Trotman’s mother Janet, who had travelled to Guyana recently to attend her brother’s funeral, said that she last saw her son when he left for work on Tuesday evening. He was going out for the seven o’ clock shift at the bauxite plant. “ I walked out with him when he was leaving, not knowing it would be the last time. This is really hard on us, especially coming at this time. My son was a very nice person, all he used to do is go to he lil karaoke and tek a lil drink, but he never trouble anybody, and when I tell he don’t drink, he used to seh, mommy I does work hard.”
He was the fourth of eight children.
Janet Trotman lamented that she lost her husband last February, and only recently buried her brother.
Police investigations into the matter are currently ongoing. (Enid Joaquin)
