Family baffled after father found dead on Windsor Forest seawall
The family of 71-year-old Pitamber Budhu called Moti is left in a state of shock after his lifeless body was found on the Windsor Forest Seawall, West Coast Demerara on Tuesday afternoon.
The pensioner lived at Fourth Street, Windsor Forest with his 69-year-old wife, Kamlawattie Budhu.
Mrs Budhu told the News Room that her husband, who suffered from diabetes, left home about 15:00hrs on Tuesday to dispose of items at the seawalls following a Hindu religious function.
“Three o clock he get up from the hammock and he say he going and throw way the religious bamboo what we had in the yard and he left and he gone,” the grieving wife said. That was the last time she saw him alive.
About 30 minutes later, Mrs Budhu said she heard about a body found and was waiting for him to return so she will get the details.
Her worst fears were confirmed when relatives later identified the body at the Leonora Diagnostic Centre. The family is clueless as to how he died.
The pensioner was a father of two children; Mrs Budhu described her husband as a “friendly and good person.”
“He was very good, he never fight with nobody, he never quarrel with nobody…he laugh and talk with everybody,” Mrs Budhu said.
Meanwhile, Police said Mr Budhu was found lying on his back with bruises on the forehead and right knee.
The body is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral Parlour awaiting a post mortem examination.
