GUYANA-Popular businessman’s decomposing body found in his home

GEORGETOWN –– The partly decomposing body of a popular East Canje businessman was found in his house around 8 a.m. on yesterday morning with suspected stab wounds to the chest and lower abdomen.

Dead is Terrence Malcolm McLean, aka “Scatchy”, 62, of Lot 6, Sheet Anchor, East Canje, Berbice.

From the condition of the body, investigators suspect that the man was killed sometime between Monday and Tuesday.

The house in which Terrence Malcolm Mc Lean called “Scatchy” was found.

The house in which Terrence Malcolm Mc Lean called “Scatchy” was found.

McLean, who lived alone, imported fibreglass boats and engines for sale. He also repaired boats and engines. He was once a goldsmith and operated a stall in the New Amsterdam Market before migrating overseas. He recently remigrated and started the boat business. His wife and five children still reside overseas.

McLean was last seen on Monday around 8:10 p.m. cycling home. His son Fredrick McLean, aka “Bumby”, who lives a stone’s throw from where his father lived, told the media that he last saw his father on Monday morning when he visited his home.

He said he tried to contact him by phone on Tuesday, but was unsuccessful. He added that he did not think anything was amiss since his father had informed him that he had plans of clearing a container that day. However, after his father repeatedly did not answer the phone, he decided to check on him on yesterday morning.

He said on visiting his father’s home he noticed the placed locked. He called and pressed the doorbell, but got no response.

He subsequently climbed on one of the boats in the yard and peeked through a window and saw his father’s cellular phone on the table. There were also some papers scattered about. He became suspicious, he said, because his father never left his phone at home. He eventually forced his way into the house.

A foul smell greeted him and a few moments later he was horrified to find his father’s bloated body lying on the floor face upwards. There were what appear to be bloodstains about the body and several stab wounds to the chest and lower abdomen. At the time of the discovery McLean was clad in a short pants and shirt.

The police were summoned and responded promptly. There was no evidence of forced entry. The dead man’s .32 firearm along with six live rounds were found intact in his bedroom, by the head of his bed. His money was also found intact. It is believed that McLean had let someone in his home to do business and a misunderstanding developed and he was killed.

Residents told the Kaieteur News that they suspect that the man was killed sometime on Tuesday. They stated that they saw a car parked at the dead man’s home on Tuesday as though he had visitors. Neighbours also stated that sometime later they heard groaning and shouting, but did not pay much mind.

Investigations are continuing. No one has been arrested so far.
