A former Guyanese agriculturalist, who worked for years in Montserrat, was found dead at his home in Guyana on Monday. Dead is 60-year old Anthony Breedy of Hill Foot, Soesdyke-Linden Highway.

The Guyana Police Force said Breedy sustained “multiple injuries to his head” and his hands and feet were tied. Investigators said his body was found in the lower flat and the upper flat was “ransacked.”

Neighbours described Breedy as a quiet and friendly person who often entertained mostly male friends. One of the things that raised suspicions was the fact that the western window curtains were pulled for some time.

Breedy  worked for several years on the British dependency of Montserrat where he played a major role in reviving agriculture in the aftermath of the volcanic eruption that devastated the southern section of the island.
