Ex-police, Cyril Persaud

(INEWS GUYANA) — The post mortem examination that was done on Cyril Nova Persaud, whose body was fished out of the Lamaha Canal at Durban Backlands on Sunday, determined that he died from brain hemorrhaging as a result of multiple blunt trauma to the head, compounded by compression injuries to the neck.

The autopsy also attributed his cause of death to blunt trauma to the abdomen and bleeding from the nostril.

The autopsy was conducted by Dr. Nehaul Singh at the GPHC mortuary.

The decomposed body of Persaud, a former member of the Guyana Police Force, was on Sunday morning fished out of the Lamaha Canal, Durban Backlands, Georgetown.

Persaud went missing on Friday last.

INews understands that after the body was pulled, it was taken to the Lyken’s Funeral Home where it was subsequently identified by the dead man’s brother, Peter Brahamdow.

Even since Persaud’s disappearance, his children who reside overseas had been trying to locate him through family members in Guyana.

An investigation has been launched into the discovery.

Persaud was reportedly attached to Mounted Branch.
