The decomposing body of a man was found by police in an apartment in Sangre Grande on Wednesday night.

According to a police report, at about 7:35 pm, police officers were called to an apartment at Blake Avenue Extension, Langley Avenue, Damarie Hill, Guaico, Sangre Grande.

The landlady told police that she last saw her tenant, 65-year-old Clint Hutchinson, about a week ago.  She said when she went to look for him on Wednesday June 16th, she found the door to his apartment locked and a foul stench emanating from within.

The officers, with some assistance, got into the apartment and conducted a search, during which they found Hutchinson’s decomposing body lying on a bed in the bedroom.

Police said there seemed to be no marks of violence on the body.  However, an autopsy was ordered to determine the actual cause of death.
