The body of a Guyanese man has been found hanging in house in Chaguanas, Trinidad, police said.

Dead is 31-year old Cleon Stewart of Lamont Street Extension, Longdenville, Chaguanas.

Police said his mother, Judith Gordon, 55, returned home at about 7.00 PM on May 15 and found him hanging from a rafter in their home.
