Shawn Mc Donald, the porkocker who was found dead at Kurupung last Monday, was bound hand and foot and beaten to death.
This was revealed yesterday during a postmortem, which showed that the 43-year-old sustained a brutal beating.
The attack left him with injuries to the head, a broken shoulder, and a deep cut to the mouth that reportedly caused him to suffocate on his own blood.
His brother, Odinga Mc Donald, who witnessed the postmortem, said that he was also told that there was evidence that the killers had tied his sibling’s limbs.
A police source said that a length of rope was tied to one of the slain man’s wrists.
While the motive for the killing is unclear, Kaieteur News understands that police are looking for three suspects in connection with the killing.
There are reports that the men were seen placing the body in a metal container.
Odinga Mc Donald said that information he received indicated that his brother, who is from Amelia’s Ward, Linden, was slain some time between last Sunday and 16.00 hrs on Monday.
But relatives only learnt of the tragedy on Wednesday, when someone contacted his mother and said, ‘Shawn dead and the body coming out.”
The brother said that he travelled to CID Headquarters, Eve Leary, where police confirmed that they had brought out the body of a ‘Shawn Mc Donald’ from the interior. He subsequently identified the body.
Odinga Mc Donald said that his brother was the eldest of four siblings and had worked in the interior for several years.
Shawn Mc Donald is the ninth person murdered in an interior location for the year.
