Elderly man found buried in shallow grave

Ramdeo Lakhan, 67, from Piparo was found by a friend on Wednesday morning.

Reports indicate that Lakhan was last seen around 5:00p.m on Tuesday by his 57-year-old friend. The man said he saw Lakhan walking along Ramdass Trace in Piparo carrying a black umbrella. It was that same umbrella that led him to a shallow grave in a bushy area on Wednesday morning. The friend called the police and while he waited, he and neighbours dug up the grave and found Lakhan’s body, which had several wounds to the head.

An autopsy will be done to confirm the cause of death.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward. Investigations are continuing.
