The badly decomposed bodies of a woman and her young baby were found late Friday night in a home at Grove on the East Bank of Demerara.
The discovery was made by neighbours and the police. Persons in the area had summoned the police to the house to investigate the source of a rotting stench that was coming from the house.
Although the woman did not interact much with persons in the area, she was not seen leaving the house for a number of days.
The names of the woman and the child have not been released. It is believed that her husband works at an interior location.
A post-mortem examination is expected to be done in the new week.
