Burnt body found near Central police station

Being in close proximity to a police station did not deter criminal elements responsible for a burnt body being found meters away from the Caroni Police Station.

According to reports, the corpse was found buried under three large tyres in a rice field in Caroni around 5 pm on Wednesday.

Police believe the victim may be a male based on a wedding band and a masculine right foot found at the scene.

The partially burnt foot bore at least three gunshot wounds.  

Three 9mm shells were also found near the body. 

Investigating officers believe the deceased may have been there for at least two days.

This story will be updated once more information becomes available.
