Moments later, he fell to the ground. While details of what may have led to the murder are still sketchy, residents of the community say that at about 05:00h on Wednesday, the man’s body was not in front of the shop.The man is said to have been living in an old car which was parked a short distance from where his body was discovered.Sister-in-law of the deceased, Shamwattie Suedatt, said often times persons would beat Sankar. According to Suedatt, after the surveillance footage was viewed by the Police, the suspect was arrested.She said the suspect was taken to the Springlands Police Station and later taken back to see the footage which showed him chasing Sankar and lashing him with what appeared to be a piece of wood.Suedatt explained that her brother-in-law was a frequent consumer of alcohol and had not been providing for his family. At time, he was employed as a cane harvester. After the couple separated and the father of one was put out of the home, he started sleeping in abandoned buildings and he started to consume more alcohol. “He turn a ‘junkie’, and then he would go out with his brother, who is my husband, to catch fish. Sometimes he would sleep in the boat or just go wherever he could sleep,” she said.The car in which the deceased used to live inMeanwhile, the suspect who is called “Chatu” gave Police a confession statement admitting to hitting Sankar on Wednesday morning.The sister-in-law told this publication that she knew the suspect for several years. “He does go out with them and catch fish too.
