A post mortem (PM) examination performed on the remains of 38-year-old Lynsay Grant, whose body was found on the parapet of a canal on Monday at Adventure, Berbice, showed that he died from multiple injuries all of which are accident-related.
Grant’s car was found submerged in the canal next to where his body was discovered. The PM revealed that the deceased suffered a punctured lung and severe injuries to his heart. It is suspected that he crawled out of his car and succumbed shortly after.
The Guyana Standard has been informed that the taxi driver’s body was found by a farmer who was passing through the area. This was some 12 hours after the deceased failed to return home.
His wife, Natasha Rambarose, said that he left home just after lunch on Sunday but never returned home. When he failed to make contact with her around 23:00 hrs that night, she started calling his friends and family to inquire.
On Monday morning, relatives went in search of him. It was until Tuesday afternoon that a farmer informed the police about a body he had stumbled upon. That body was later identified as the father of one.
