Police are probing the murder of a man who was killed on Tuesday evening, in El Dorado.

The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Marcus Anthony Singh, of Amethyst Drive.

Reports are that Singh’s roommate, Ronaldo Gosein, arrived home around 6 pm and entered the apartment he shared with Singh and another person.

As he walked into the bedroom, he found Singh lying face down on the floor.

Singh had been found in his underwear and there were several wounds on his back.

Gosein said he rolled Singh over and attempted to revive him before contacting the Emergency Health Services and the police.

The District Medical Officer visited the scene and ordered Singh’s body removed to the Forensics Sciences Centre, St James.

It is believed Singh’s relatives live in Guyana.

An autopsy is expected to be done today.
