Man allegedly killed by father died of lung perforation – Autopsy

Dead: Satesh Kevin Sookdeo

TWENTY-one-year-old Satesh Kevin Sookdeo of Lot 217 Fifth Street, Foulis, East Coast Demerara, who was allegedly killed by his father on Saturday last, died from perforation to the lung as result of a stab wound to the chest, an autopsy confirmed.

The autopsy was conducted by Dr. Nehaul Singh at the Georgetown Public Hospital on Monday.

Reports indicate that the 44-year-old suspect and his wife had an argument during which he grabbed her by the neck and began choking her.

Upon seeing this, the now dead young man and another sibling intervened. The father, who as outraged, took part of the remains of a louvre pane he had subsequently broken and stabbed the lad to his chest.

Neighbours rushed to the family’s aid after hearing screams but by then the younger Sookdeo had already succumbed to his injuries.

The Police were contacted and the suspect was arrested.
