Atlantic Gardens woman was struck multiple times in the head – PME finds
A Post Mortem Examination (PME) conducted on the body of 61-year-old Sattie Beekharry, who was brutally murdered in her Atlantic Gardens, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home, found that she was struck multiple times to the head and right side rib.
The PME was conducted on Wednesday at the Georgetown Public Hospital’s mortuary by Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh who gave the cause of death as brain haemorrhage as a result of multiple trauma to head, compounded by multiple fractures to right side rib.
The body was identified by the woman’s cousins.
The mother of three was found in a pool of blood at her Lot 152 – 154 Begonia Drive, Atlantic Gardens home on Monday afternoon.
Neighbours told the News Room that they heard the woman screaming for “murder” and so they contacted the Police who responded promptly.
The suspect, who is said to be a close friend of the woman, was found hiding in the house and was arrested after Police used tear gas to flush him out and subsequently broke down the door.
Regional Commander, Assistant Police Commissioner Royston Andries Junor on Wednesday told the News Room that the investigation is still ongoing.
He declined to comment on whether investigators confirmed the motive of the murder or obtained a confession.
