Police ranks in Regional Division #9 have recovered the body of 53-year-old Michael Adolph of Tabatinga, Lethem, in Central Rupununi. The body of the missing man was found in a water well in a yard at Tabatinga, Lethem.
According to the deceased man’s 23-year-old daughter, who resided with him, she last saw her father on Monday at about 05:30 hours, when he left their home.
On November 10, at about 17:30 hours, a 40-year-old housewife of Tabatinga, who went to fetch water from the well, discovered the man’s body face down in the structure.
The matter was reported to the Lethem Police Station. Police ranks visited the scene where they observed Adolph lying face down in the well in about seven feet of water.
The body was retrieved from the well and examined for marks of violence—two small cuts were seen on the deceased’s forehead and head. Adolph’s body is presently at the Lethem Hospital’s mortuary awaiting a post-mortem examination.
The investigation is ongoing.
