Ray’s family wants second autopsy

 THE family of Ray Kub­lalsingh have many unan­swered questions as to what

actually caused his death and have made arrangements for an additional autopsy to take place.

The search for Kublal­singh ended on Friday, with the discovery of his body near his Claxton Bay home.

Kublalsingh, 81, the father of environmental acti­vist Dr Wayne Kublal­singh, went missing on Tuesday mor­ning. His body was found by a search party of neigh­bours, friends and relatives. 

At that time, Dr Wayne Kublalsingh, the leader of the Highway Re-Route Movement (HRM), was at

the Hall of Justice, Port of Spain, as litigation con­tin­ued into the HRM’s fight against the State over the construction of the Point Fortin highway extension.

The younger Kublalsingh said yesterday: “There are many doubts as to what has

happened. We think it might

be best to have a sec­ond au­topsy conducted. The first

one will take place (tomor­row) and we have arranged for an independent autopsy to take place on Tuesday.”

He said: “We are hoping that he died from natural causes and that he didn’t meet up with any violence.”

Dr Wayne Kublalsingh said his father’s funeral was

being planned for Wed­nes-

day, with a funeral service at the Susamachar Presbyterian Church, San Fernando, followed by the interment at Belgroves Funeral Home, also in San Fernando.
