Autopsy shows Daniel Mahabir was beaten to death

Daniel Mahabir, 55, died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

This was revealed by an autopsy which was performed at the Forensic Science Center in St James. 

The autopsy confirmed the pronouncements of the district medical officer who visited the scene of the killing on New Year’s Day.

Mahabir, who is said to be from Bamboo Settlement, Valsayn, was identified by relatives who witnessed the post-mortem.

He was the first killing for 2019.

According to a relative who reached out to LoopTT, Mahabir had been protecting the scrap yard where he worked from thieves. 

Police are hopeful that arrests will be made in the immediate future as it was noted that there were several CCTV cameras outfitted along Concession Drive, Sea Lots, near the scrap yard where Mahabir’s body was found on Tuesday morning.

Investigations are continuing.
