Al­most

two weeks af­ter he was re­ported miss­ing, the de­te­ri­o­rated body of a 49-year-old man at­tached to Ster­ling Prod­ucts Lim­ited was dis­cov­ered this morn­ing ( Wed­nes­day) in Brighton Vil­lage, Coren­tyne in a field.

This is ac­cord­ing to the fa­ther of the now dead, Ra­jen­dra Per­saud - orig­i­nally of Ber­bice- who has been re­sid­ing in Kitty, Ge­or­get own for ap­prox­i­mately three years.

Per­saud’s fa­ther ex­plained that he re­ceived a call at around 11:00hrs on Wed­nes­day in­form­ing him that a body had been found in a field and that a farmer made the dis­cov­ery.

Upon ar­riv­ing at the scene, the el­derly man ex- plained that his son-in-law iden­ti­fied the badly de­te­ri­o­rated body to be that of Per­saud’s.

“They recog­nise he from he clothes and he haver­sack,” the man told this pub­li­ca­tion.

Alarms of Per­saud’s dis­ap­pear­ance were raised on Novem­ber 11, 2017, af­ter the de­ceased failed to make con­tact with his mother, in Ber­bice, as he would on a daily ba­sis.

Per­saud’s fa­ther ex­plained that since his son’s dis­ap­pear­ance, he has been try­ing to get in con­tact with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Ster­ling Lim­ited so as to “fit the pieces of the puz­zle.”

How­ever, he noted that this proved fu­tile un­til to­day, when an of­fi­cial made con­tact with him to ex­press con­do­lences.

He noted fur­ther his suspicions of foul play in con­nec­tion with his son’s death and is call­ing on the po­lice to act swiftly in bring­ing about jus­tice.

Per­saud was not mar­ried and did not have any chil­dren. He leaves to mourn his par­ents and other fam­ily and friends.
