Skeletal remains found in abandoned building at Uitvlugt

Skeletal remains, believed to those of a man, were found on Friday morning in an abandoned two-storey wooden building at Uitvlugt Estate Road, West Coast Demerara.

Police Headquarters reported that the remains were found at about 09:45 hrs Friday.

The discovery was made by 51-year-old labourer of Stewartville Squatting Area, West Coast Demerara, who entered the building looking for a toilet to use.

A foul scent was emanating from the upper flat of the building. As such, the labourer reportedly went to the upper flat of the building through an eastern staircase and observed the fully decomposed remains of a man hanging.

The remains were eventually removed and taken to the Ezekiel Funeral Home, awaiting identification and post-mortem examination.
