An autopsy performed on Monday on the body of Deon Malino has revealed that the 46-year-old man died as a result of a heart attack.
Malino, police said, was the main suspect in the murder of his wife, 37-year-old Kaeisha Malino on March 24, and since the incident he had been evading the police.
His body was discovered on Thursday morning along Upper Grand Curacaye Road, San Juan.
According to reports, at about 9.30 am residents of Upper Grand Curacaye Road observed the body of a man lying on a track at the end of the roadway. The E999 service was notified and a party of officers from the service, the San Juan Police Station and the Santa Cruz Police Station, visited the scene. The officers found the body, which had a green rag over its face, and contacted officials from the Homicide Bureau of Investigation.
An autopsy at the Forensic Science Centre in St James by forensic pathologist Dr Valery Alexandrov revealed that Deon Malino suffered a heart attack. Alexandrov also noted that the condition and colouring of several of Malino’s internal organs were typical of chronic alcohol abuse, and this, coupled with his age, led to his cardiac arrest.
On March 24 last, Kaeisha Malino’s body was found on the floor of her home by police.
