The decomposed body discovered early this morning is believed to be that of Azad Ali, the wheelchair-bound man suspected of murdering 19-year-old Salma Chadee of Caroni and Sherlene Mahangoo-Charles of Tarodale.
A chrome 9mm pistol, the weapon believed to have been used in Chadee’s shooting death, was found beneath the corpse.
According to reports at approximately 5.45a.m today a man cutting bushes in the area discovered the body and called police.
Police indicate that the badly decomposed body fitted the description of the suspect.
Police revealed that the body was found less than a mile from where police conducted an intense search for the suspect near Reform Village, east of Gasparillo.
The search involved helicopters, tracker dogs and special police units two weeks ago.
The officers were working on information that the man suspected in the murders had been killed, and his body thrown in the bushes off Reform Road.
Investigators were searching for a man named Azad Ali, also known as Azad Mohammed, Joe Mohammed and ‘Goat’, who could help them with information that could help solve both cases.
