Another man found dead with throat slit in Piarco, say police

For the second time this week, Homicide officers visited Caroni North Bank Road, Piarco, after a body was discovered in the area.

The decomposing body of Muyembe Blake, 25, was discovered at his home around 5 pm on Wednesday.

His throat appeared to have been slit, police said.

The situation alarmed officers as Blake lived near Kemraj Singh, whose body was discovered on Monday morning in the yard of his home.

Singh, police said, had also had his throat slit.

As a result, police believe the two men were killed in the same attack.

An autopsy is expected to take place today at the Forensic Science Centre in St James.

More on this as it becomes available.
