Police said the incident occurred at around 13:00hrs at Central Amelia’s Ward.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Monroe and another colleague, who are both employees of Re-Link Wireless Internet Service, were at the time tasked with the maintenance of internet service for a customer.

Monroe was immediately picked up by Sandy and rushed to the Linden Hospital complex where he was pronounced dead.

Police said the body was examined and no marks of violence were seen. The body of Monroe is presently laying at the De Jestco’s Funeral Parlor awaiting post mortem examination.
