Additionally, a matching spent shell was recovered from the scene.However, while the post-mortem examination revealed that Parris died as a result of a single gunshot, Government Pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh, who conducted the autopsy on Wednesday morning, has found that the warhead entered the young man’s right nostril and exited the middle of the head.It was determined that given the trajectory, the gunshot wound “was not self-inflicted”.A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander Marlon Chapman subsequently told Guyana Times that the probe would continue as a murder investigation.Parris’s body was discovered by his uncle some time around 07:40h. The Police had not ruled out anything despite the scene being consistent with that of a suicide, and the family members of the now dead man had maintained that he was murdered, saying he had no reasons to take his own life.Meanwhile, it was reported that the young man was not a holder of a firearm licence and as such, checks are being made to trace the ownership of the weapon. When asked about this, Chapman said that the Police were still trying to determine whether the weapon was licensed.In the meantime, the body of Parris has been handed over to relatives for burial.last_img
