The partially-decomposed body of a Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) man was discovered on Tuesday morning in a canal.The dead man has since been identified as 38-year-old Jaigobin Seecharran, called “Red Man”, of Lot 92 Herstelling New Housing Scheme.Dead: Jaigobin SeecharranHis body was discovered floating in the “number three canal”, which separates Herstelling and the Mocha Access Road, around 08:30h by workers of a nearby block-making establishment. The body was clad in a black T-shirt and a pair of long blue jeans.The owner of the business, Shazad Ally, told Guyana Times, that he was in his yard checking on his workers when one of them informed him about the body in the canal.“When I go out and check, it was a dead body in the trench, so I call the Police and inform them about it,” he recalled.According to the businessman, ranks of the nearby Providence Police Station were summoned and subsequently contacted the undertakers to remove the body.“The undertakers them came and when they pull out the body, then we realised it was a villager – a guy name “Red Man”,” Ally related.He noted that at the time word of the “floating body” had already spread through the village and persons, including relatives of Seecharran, were gathered around and so they were able to positively identify the man.This publication understands that Seecharran, a former minibus conductor, was last seen alive by relatives on Sunday evening when he left home around 19:30h.His brother, Seegobin, told this newspaper that they were not worried when the 38-year-old man did not return home, since he would usually disappear for a few days without informing anyone whenever he imbibed heavily.“Sometimes, he would go over Herstelling (old scheme) and stay there… He does even leave and go by my other brother in Mahaica without telling anybody and stay there for like two weeks and so,” the man explained.According to Seegobin, he was at work on Tuesday morning when his wife called and informed him that a body was found in the nearby canal and that a cousin had confirmed that it was his brother.Meanwhile, the Police said that Seecharran’s body was found face down in the water. Checks were made for marks of violence, but none were found.The body of Seecharran is currently at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination.
