Police investigators were called early this morning to the East Coast Demerara village of Montrose after the lifeless body of seventy-six -year old Carmen Ganesh was found sprawled on her kitchen floor with a wound to the head.
Investigators suspect that the woman was murdered during a home invasion. There are reports that she may have been hit over the head and later strangled to death.
The elderly woman was last seen alive by neighbours early last evening while in the yard of the two-storey house. She was well known in the community but lived alone in the house.
The discovery was made by a relative who broke into the house this morning after several calls for the woman went unanswered.
Police investigators are reviewing security cameras for possible clues.
