Woman, 94, found nude, strangled

TWO MORE cases were piled on for homicide detectives to solve yesterday after the discovery of two bodies in separate incidents.

On Monday, the nude body of 94-year-old Martina Roxborough was discovered by her daughter at around 7 a.m. at the woman's Fishing Village, Maracas Bay, home.

Roxborough was last seen alive by her daughter at around 7 p.m. on Sunday.

An autopsy performed on the woman yesterday revealed that she died from manual strangulation.

In a far more peculiar case, the decomposing body of a man, bearing a dreadlocked hairstyle, was found with a piece of bamboo stalk protruding from his rear.

The body was found at around midnight yesterday in some bushes off Thavenot Street, Tacarigua. The man, of African descent, is still to be identified. The two latest deaths have pushed the murder toll to 298, according to an Express tally.

Officers from the Homicide Bureau are continuing investigations into both incidents.
