Probe into man’s death

By By Rickie Ramdass rickie.ramdass@trinidadexpress.com

POLICE are inves­tiga­­ting the circum­stan­ces surrounding the death of a 61-year-old man whose body was found in a pool of blood at his San Juan home yesterday morning.

Up to last night, offi­­cers were unable to say how Kamal Balgobin met his death and are await­ing the results of an autopsy to be performed on his body tomorrow.

Officers said at around 10.30 a.m., Bal­go­bin’s relatives found him lying in the corridor of his Bhag­gan Avenue home before contacting police.

Investigators said they initially believed Balgobin had fallen and hit his head but after his body was viewed by a district medical officer, the officers said they were advised by the doc­tor to treat the case as a possible homicide until the autopsy is performed.

This advice, they said, was given as a result of the major blood loss Balgobin suffered which could have been as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.
