Dismembered bodies of two men identified

The dismembered bodies of two men which were found in Cunupia on Monday have been identified.

They are 31-year-old Makell Simon of Soldado Road, Lange Park, Chaguanas and 27-year-old of Circular Trace, Enterprise.

The bodies were identified yesterday by relatives at the Forensic Science Centre in Federation Park.

Around 1 p.m. on Monday, the dismembered bodies of two men were found in garbage bags dumped in a river at Mon Plaisir Road.

Police said a man who went to the area to gather flowers for a Hindu prayer service spotted a foot protruding from one of the bags covered by an old mattress.

On the torso of one of the men was a tattoo of the word ‘Simon’.

The fourth foot was found floating in the river some 100 feet away from the original scene, and the fourth arm was found yesterday afternoon.

Simon and Charles were reported missing over the weekend.

Both men, from Chaguanas, told relatives they were going to meet friends and never returned home.
