- Body bore stabs wounds.
A well known East Canje businessman was found in his house on Wednesday morning with suspected stab wounds to the chest and lower abdomen. Sixty two year old Terrence Malcolm Mc Lean, called “Scratchy”, was discovered dead in his home in a partly decomposed state. Investigators are saying he may have died sometime between Monday and Tuesday.
Mc Lean, who lived alone, was last seen on Monday around 20:10 hrs cycling home by his son, who – after several attempts to contact his father since Monday – was unsuccessful. This led the man to pay him a visit which revealed a padlocked door and a foul stench emanating from the house. After forcing his way into the home, he discovered his father’s body on the floor. He was lying on his back.
Initial checks showed blood stains about the body and several stab wounds to the chest and lower abdomen. The police were alerted and conducted the necessary investigations. There were no signs of forced entry and the businessman’s gun was recovered in his bedroom, with live rounds. There was also no evidence of a robbery since the man’s cash was also undisturbed.
Persons have expressed the view he was killed by known persons whom he invited into his home. Residents recalled seeing a car parked in front the house on Tuesday and also recounted hearing groaning and screaming in the now dead man’s house. No arrests have been made and Police are continuing their investigations into the matter.
