‘Pumpkin’ identified as man killed in POS

The man who was found dead on Friday morning in Port of Spain has been identified as 62-year-old Peter Mohammed. 

Mohammed, also known as 'Pumpkin' was found dead at about 5:30am on Friday at the exit to a carpark near Abercromby Street and Queen Janelle Commissiong Street, in Port of Spain. 

At the time, he was lying on the roadway with part of his body covered by a cardboard box. 

When attempts were made to awake him, onlookers noticed that there was a pool of blood by his head and throat, as well as a wound to the back of the head. 

An autopsy has been ordered to confirm what caused the wound. 

This is expected to be done today at the Forensic Science Center in Federation Park.
