Badly battered body of missing fisherman found in sandpit

The badly battered body of a fisherman, who was reported missing two days ago, was found Wednesday in a sandpit at Number 68 Village, Corentyne.

Police in East Berbice have since arrested five persons who they believe can share vital information about the circumstances surrounding the death of 26-year old Levan Chanderpaul.

Marks of violence including bruises on his face, ears, head, neck and scrotum were seen by police who examined the body at the scene.

Based on the condition of the area, police believed that the man was beaten elsewhere and his body taken to the sandpit.

Residents remembered last seeing the man Monday night at about 7 O’clock.

After his mother reported to police that her son had gone missing, search teams were deployed but to no avail.

It took a boy, who was grazing animals, to raise an alarm when he spotted the body shortly after  3 PM Wednesday in the sandpit which is located less than one mile from the Number 68 Village Public Road. One of the search teams responded to the screaming boy who led them to the area.

Chanderpaul was widely known in his village as a heavy smoker and drinker.

    ROBBERY and KILLING everywhere…RUMJAAT must be at AIRPORT BAR sipping a BEER! What else plan does he have to CURB crime and be PRO ACTIVE? I Think this man will be a good candidate to test RUM rather than the position he hold today. ZERO action plan just consuming alcohol waiting for the next pie for him to dip his hands and full his pocket…SHAME on NAGA MAN and RUMJAAT for selling Guyana to the DEVILS!
