He was reportedly struck from behind by a truck sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning last week. The man died late Saturday afternoon while receiving medical treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.The dead man’s mother, Gloria Barker, told Guyana Times, via telephone, that the family received a call on Friday afternoon informing them that her son was missing.She said that a report was made to the Police and the family began searching for Lamazon. His daughter discovered his remains at the Georgetown Public Hospital after he died on Saturday.The grieving mother explained that details surrounding her son’s death were sketchy, but they were informed by hospital officials that Lamazon was involved in a hit-and-run accident.“We get the call and they didn’t say what happen. We search the hospital and so, but didn’t find him, but Saturday a friend said that they see he in the hospital and when he daughter reach there, he was already dead,” Barker related.A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander Marlon Chapman said that the Police had questioned Lamazon in connection with the dumping of the teacher who succumbed days later, and he had shared some information with them.However, Commander Chapman did not reveal what information the now deceased man provided to the Police, while saying that it was too early to determine if the accident was linked to the brutal murder of the schoolteacher. The Police, however, are exploring every angle.“We spoke to him long before the incident and we are aware of his accident and subsequent death, and we have launched an investigation to determine what happened…it would be too early to say if it is linked to the information, but we are exploring all sides,” Chapman said.It was suggested that Lamazon might have been killed in order to “shut him up”, preventing him from giving the Police additional information.A post-mortem examination is expected to be performed on Lamazon’s body on Wednesday.Investigations are ongoing.last_img
