Burnt remains of woman found at Parika
The burnt remains of a woman were found on Tuesday night outside a house under construction at Parika, East Bank Essequibo.
It is suspected that the remains are those of 29-year-old Shannen Obermullah-Mohamed; she was the owner of the house.
The charred remains were found outside the concrete structure of the house.
An aunt, Annie Atkinson, told the News Room on Wednesday that Shannen’s sister called her at about 22:30 hrs and told her she was murdered.
Atkinson said Shannen was planning to move into the house with her husband who is currently working in the interior while she [Shannen] had oversight of the construction.
Atkinson explained that Shannen was in contact with her sister on Tuesday morning and later left to go to the house; she checked on the progress every day.
It is alleged that Shannen picked up one of the construction workers on the way to the house and that was the last time anyone heard from her.
The family said that numerous calls to her phone went unanswered. It is believed that the construction worker set the woman’s body on fire.
