A 37-year-old man was found dead this morning in Carapichaima.

Police are currently on location.

The deceased has been identified as Eldon Roopnarine of Ojar Maarah Avenue, Carapichaima.

His body, which bore signs of injury, was found around 7 am today in a grassy area off Brickfield, Carapichaima.

Police were told that the victim had been “kidnapped” by five men around 7 pm on Tuesday.

At the time, the man was in the company of a 28-year-old woman.

The two were bundled into a Mazda 323 by five men and taken into a bushy area in the  Brickfield community.

The woman was thrown out of the car and she managed to walk until she was able to find someone who would help her to notify the police around 3 am.

However, Roopnarine’s body was not found until four hours later.

Supt Gill, ASP Smith, Inspector Figaro, Sgt Nelson, and Sgt Boxer, among others, are currently on the scene.
