Police have salvaged the dead body of a man. It was uncovered from what is known as George’s infamous house in Cathedral Street.
GEORGE: DEAD BODY EMERGES FROM CATHEDRAL STREET ‘DRUG’ HOUSE
There’s somewhat of a surprise in the story. According to the police report, the body that was found on Monday morning in the house died of natural causes.
The local cops confirmed that no criminal investigation will be carried out. The deceased was not murdered.
Police spokesperson Capt Malcolm Pojie revealed that the dead is related to Tuberculosis (TB).
“It is reported that he suffered from TB and had such medical records,” said Pojie.
DRUG HOUSE REPUTATION
According to the George Herald News, the house on Cathedral Street where the dead body was removed was not held in high regard in the community.
The publication said the house was simply not liked much by those who call Cathedral street home or a business location.
“The so-called drug house has been a thorn in the side of residents and business owners in the area for some years with ongoing complaints ranging from constant screaming, swearing and fighting in the street in front of the house, alleged drug dealing, prostitution, theft out of motor vehicles and vandalism, to abuse and people urinating and defecating in front of the house and on nearby properties,” the report concluded.
