The decomposing body of a 60-year-old man was discovered at his home at Dass Trace in Enterprise on Tuesday.

The man has been identified as Earl Hector of Flora Terrence, Dass Trace Enterprise Chaguanas.

According to a police report, at about 10 am on Tuesday June 1st, one of Hector’s relatives came to the property to make checks on him.  The relative reportedly saw the body of the deceased in a sitting position on a chair inside the porch of his home.  The body appeared to be in a state of decomposition.

The relative told police that he had spoken to Hector at about 3 pm on Saturday. Hector was said to be suffering from several medical complications.

The District Medical Officer visited the scene, made a pronouncement and ordered the body be removed for an autopsy at the Forensic Sciences Centre.

The body was later removed by the undertakers of Boodoo’s Funeral Home and was escorted to the Eric Williams Mortuary.  However, the body was denied storage as the facility was said to be filled to capacity. The body was then escorted to the Boodoo’s Funeral Home in Cunupia and kept for storage.
