The decomposed body of a 26-year-old man was found on Wednesday at his Circuitville, Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD) home. Dead is Ron Loncke who suffered from epilepsy. Loncke, who lived alone in a small wooden shack, was found lying face down on his bed by a 53-year-old carpenter, Decius Mundo.
He was last seen alive on Monday by his father. Mundo, also of Circuitville, Timehri, EBD was passing when he observed that the door to Loncke’s home was open. As such, he stopped to make checks on him since he had not seen him for several days.
When Mundo approached the building, he started getting a foul scent. He then peered inside and observed Loncke’s bloated and decomposed body lying on a bed. Mundo immediately contacted the Police. Loncke’s body bore no marks of violence.
Upon examining the dwelling, Police found no signs of breakage or forced entry and everything in the interior appeared normal. Loncke was pronounced dead on arrival at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre. His body is being stored at the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home. A post mortem examination will be performed on his remains soon.
