PME finds Leonora man may have been strangled then drowned


A Post Mortem Examination (PME) conducted on the body of Sunil Mangra, the Leonora, West Coast Demerara man who was found on the seawalls Monday morning has suggested that he may have been strangled then drowned.

The post-mortem was conducted Wednesday and found “compression injuries to the neck” and listed the cause of death as asphyxiation (suffocation) due to drowning.

Mangra, 23, left his mother’s home on Saturday evening and was last known to have been at a local bar with friends.

When he did not return home, his mother enlisted the help of family and friends to help find him and a report was made to the Leonora Police Station.

Mangra’s body was discovered near the koker at the neighbouring village of Stewartville.

Police are continuing their investigations.
