When the vehicle topple the cushion pitch out and like as the car keep toppling he pitched out too and the car rolled over him. That is why he had broken ribs and internal bleeding… His jaw was also in like he had a broken jaw,” the brother-in-law revealed.Dead: Lynsey GrantWhen Grant’s body was discovered, he was still wearing jewellery and had cash in his pockets. This dispelled rumours that he fell among robbers and his body was dumped.The body of the 39-year-old man of Lot 52 Adventure Public Road, Corentyne, was found on the parapet next to the canal on Monday.According to his wife, Natasha Rambarose, her husband was last seen at Mibicuri, Black Bush Polder, at about 18:00h on Sunday and was expected to be home within an hour, but never turned up. This led to family members searching for Grant on Sunday evening and again on Monday.A farmer made the dreadful discovery on Monday morning.Natasha Rambarose described her husband as a very jovial person who was fond of the Indian culture.Grant had been operating his taxi along the Berbice-Georgetown route but had given that up to go into the construction field and also to operate in the Black Bush Polder as a taxi driver.However, over the past two months, Grant, who also plants cash crops at his Adventure home, returned to driving a taxi full-time.He leaves to mourn his wife of 14 years and his 12-year-old daughter.last_img read more
