“Whoever took his life has to pay and they will pay very soon.”
Those were the words of a man said to be like a grandfather to nine-year-old Cyon Paul during his funeral yesterday.
Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a decomposing body found over a precipice along Blanchisseuse Road, Arima, near Paria Junction. Blanchisseuse police received an anonymous call around 9 am yesterday alerting them to the body. Police led by Sgt Maharaj and Cpl Babwah responded and saw the body lying several feet down the precipice. The body was was found with hands tied behind its back.
It was clad in a red long-sleeved jersey, blue three-quarter pants and red Clark’s boots. Police said the advanced stage of decomposition made it difficult to determine the race and to determine any clear marks of violence. They believe the body had been there for the past two weeks. Arima Fire Station officers retrieved the body around 4 pm.
