Mother seeks answers after son found dead

13

POINTE XPRESS: The mother of the young man whose body was discovered outside his home on Wednesday morning said she wants answers into the cause or causes of his death.

The police have not made any determination about the possible cause of death of twenty-three-year-old Malco Codougan of St Vincent and the Grenadines, who had been living in Antigua for almost two years.

A passerby noticed the body outside the house sometime between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. Wednesday and he alerted the neighbours. The ambulance was summoned after the EMS realized that he was already dead. The police arrived on the scene soon after and are still carrying out their investigation.

His mother, Lynette Codougan, who resides in St Vincent, told PointeXpress that so far she has not heard from the police in St. John’s. Information about her son’s death was relayed through family and the media.

She said she is troubled by the death of her son, especially over the fact that he was struck by a motor vehicle while on duty as a security guard and his many attempts to get some compensation have all met a wall of indifference.

Lynette Codougan reported that Malco visited the insurance company where the vehicle is insured, only to discover that the driver never submitted a report. Even the company where he worked appeared unwilling to assist. He eventually sought the advice of a union and had consulted a lawyer.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the police said they are continuing their investigations into the matter. Under situations such as this, a post mortem examination is normally conducted on the body to provide a definitive cause of death.

    • This only in Antigua nonsense is over played …. we were born dying …. now give the the police time to investigate … wasnt he struck by a vehicle at his work place… do u know what’s s blood clot… stop the only in Antigua shit… he came here seeking a better life. My condolences to his mom… but let’s stop crying down our country until we fully understand what happened

  1. Mommy come to Antigua and get a lawyer, maybe stress contributed to blood clots in his injured leg. Dem too thief and wicked in this place, insurance and government, all ah dem under the same alliance 😡

  2. Another unfortunate incident. Just like in the case of Nigel Christian.

    How many murderers are we going to accept from the govt?

    Where are Nigel Christian’s murderers? In this small country it’s an embarrassment they can’t find them. This stinks of nefarious people at the top involved.

  3. A line that caught my attention….ambulance was called after the EMS realized he was already dead………Do you call an ambulance for someone who is dead?

  4. My point exactly..how can you call an ambulance for a dead person .isn’t the funeral home should if been contacted..smh

  5. I’m saying … Like aren’t they supposed bring a doctor to pronounce him dead? Isn’t that protocol? Why didn’t the police inform the mother about her son’s death , why did she have to find out on the media or by family members? What is that? 🤨

    • Exactly, the police were supposed to inform the family, even if they do not have all of the details, as long as they know who he is, the first thing is to get in contact with the family. I am so saddened by things like this. It sounds very fishy. Imagine this mother being in a different country and not getting any information…that must be devastating.

  6. it was sad to see the young man laying there for hours. his phone was ringing and they, the police kept saying to leave the phone. in order to get this matter sorted you will definitely need to take a flight to anu
