Carol Augustus, the 42-year-old
woman of Sophia
whose body was found on the
Green Field, East Coast Demerara
foreshore last week Friday was
strangled to death, according to
Investigations have also
uncovered that the mentally ill
woman was sexually assaulted and
her death might have stemmed
from her fighting against being gang-raped.
Police had held five men.
They released two yesterday and
three are being treated as prime
suspects into the woman's
murder. Augustus had wandered
off from her Sophia home two
Wednesdays ago without the
knowledge of her relatives.
They made several searches
but did not find her until she
was discovered dead last Friday
