Hemraj Pardessi, 60, an overseas-based Guyanese was found dead in his Reliance Settlement, East Canje Berbice, home yesterday around 23:43hrs, police say.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Pardessi returned to Guyana during the early part of July 2021 and was residing alone at the above-mentioned location.
He was last seen alive and well by his nephew earlier yesterday in the company of a male.
Police officers, who visited the crime scene, discovered Pardessi’s body lying face down with what appeared to be blood coming from his nose, and duct tape around his neck. Several traces of blood were seen on the step leading to the upper flat.
The upper flat of the house was ransacked.
The man was pronounced dead by a doctor at 02:15hrs and the body is presently at the Arokium Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination.
Further investigations led to the arrest of the four suspects.
The suspects have only been identified by police as a 22-year-old male, 28-year-old male, 31-year-old male, and 36-year-old female.
