Following the discovery of human remains in an overgrown area in Siparia on Friday afternoon, officers of the South Western Division are now of the view that the body is that of a missing man.
Reports state that based on the clothing found near the remains, police believe the dead person might be missing retiree Orville “Ashley” Richards.
Richards, 60, was last seen alive at around 1 pm on June 12 at his home at Penal Quinam Road in Mendez Village.
The police found the remains not far away at Deoraj Trace, off Penal Quinam Road.
Richards, a father of three, retired as a security officer with the National Maintenance Training and Security Company Ltd earlier this year.
