REAL NEWS: An investigation has been launched into what is believed to be the country’s ninth homicide for 2023. Added: The victim has been identified as Rolston Joseph.
According to reports, the lifeless body of a man, clad in dark shorts and a red-and-white T-shirt, was found inside a white vehicle with the licence plate A 27771.
The man appears to have been shot to death.
Reportedly the vehicle bears evidence of bullets having been fired, as well as damage to its front end, where the hood is dented, while the rear bumper is also ripped off.
The car also has scratches all over it.
The damage to the front might have been caused by the victim driving through a fence in the vicinity of the T.N. Kirnon School on Old Parham Road, and ending up against a vendor’s booth nearby.
It is assumed that the man was trying to get away from his assailants, as his right leg was on the driver’s seat while his body lay slumped on the passenger side, with his head tilted toward the floor of the vehicle.
The passenger door was open, with a portion of it showing damage, while a cell phone appeared to have been placed on the dead man’s body.
Onlookers who happened upon the crime scene speculated that the man could have been shot elsewhere and was fleeing; but since he could drive no farther he ran off the road and into the fence.
In a video that has gone viral, a woman is heard saying she saw the vehicle early this morning, November 2, and thought it had been abandoned after an accident.
She said she was unaware that a dead body was lying inside the vehicle.
Another woman went to the area to check and saw the corpse inside, which came as a shock to the others.
