A 58-year-old Chaguanas man was discovered on Monday morning with his head bashed in.
Mohanlal Dwarika’s female relative told police that he was recently discharged from hospital and she had spent time with him on Sunday.
She said she left his house around 9pm to go to her home, which is located nearby.
However, when she returned around 7am this morning to check on him, she found him on the bed, unresponsive and with a wound to his face.
Police believe he was attacked as he slept.
A district medical officer pronounced him dead at the scene.
Investigations are ongoing.
