Police hunting 18-year-old after man he abused succumbs
40-year-old Deonarine Manbodh of 668 Plantation Best, West Coast Demerara (W.C.D) died at the Georgetown Public Hospital at around 20:30 hrs on Tuesday due to brain haemorrhage, compounded by blunt trauma to the head.
According to police reports, Manbodh was clubbed about his body and head with a cricket bat on October 20, 2016, by an 18-year-old male, resulting in him being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
Investigations revealed that the victim and the suspect had an altercation over a female relative of the victim, which resulted in a heated argument; during that process, the suspect who was armed with a cricket bat, dealt several lashes to the victim’s head and body and fled the scene.
The victim was rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital in a semi-conscious state and was referred to the Georgetown Hospital where he was admitted and subsequently fell into a coma. He was later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit, where he died.
A post-mortem was done today and the cause of death was given as brain haemorrhage, compounded by blunt trauma to the head.
