Autopsy ordered as 26-year-old found dead

An autopsy has been ordered after the body of a 26-year-old man was found.

The deceased has been identified as Eloyn Kenny Johnson of  Plum Road, Manzanilla.

According to police reports, Johnson's relatives visited his home at about 7.30 AM on Thursday after not hearing from him for some time.

When they arrived, they detected a foul stench. Upon further examination, they found Johnson’s body lying on a mattress in the home where it was found in an advanced stage of decomposition.

DMO Dr. Okolo visited the scene and made certain pronouncements. Police were told by relatives that the deceased suffered from epilepsy. However, an autopsy was ordered to confirm the cause of death and completely rule out foul play.

WPC Kalipersad is continuing inquiries.
