Triumph ‘Breadman’ was strangled to death
A Post-Mortem Examination conducted on the body of 63-year-old Clairmonte Telesford, who was murdered by bandits on Sunday morning found that he died from manual strangulation, compounded by blunt trauma to the head.
News Room had reported that Telesford, known as ‘Breadman’ was packing up his shop in front his Lot 101 Republic Drive, Triumph, East Coast Demerara home when he and his reputed wife were attacked by three bandits, one of whom was armed with a gun.
The wife, Shondel Emanuel had told News Room that the bandits tied them up and threatened to kill them if they did not hand over money and other valuables.
The woman said she took two of the bandits inside the house while the other remained outside with her husband.
The bandits made their escape with approximately $600,000 in jewellery and an undisclosed amount of phone cards.
Emanuel was left tied up inside the house but managed to break free where she found Telford lying in a pool of blood outside with his hands tied behind his back.
Telford operated his business for more than ten years and this was not his first robbery.
Residents described the father of one as a “lifesaver” and a kind person who worked hard.
