Police at Cove and John on the East Coast of Demerara are investigating the brutal murder of an 89-year-old woman whose bloodied body was found under a house located next door to the Cove and John Cemetery.
The dead pensioner has been identified as Millicent Prince-Cummings. Investigators have sealed off the area where the body was found and have launched a full probe. The woman’s body was found with her dress ripped apart and her face bashed in. One of her slippers was missing and she also bore a number of other violent marks about the body.
The woman’s nephew Hugo Prince told News Source that he got a telephone call at 6:30 this morning informing him of the murder. He said he rushed to the area and was saddened by what he saw.
“Aunt Millicent” he said, would have been celebrating her 90th Birthday “in a matter of days” and he is baffled with the murder.
The body of the woman has been taken to a City Mortuary.
