A gentleman has fallen

The lo­cal crick­et­ing fra­ter­ni­ty was thrown in­to shock with the news that crick­et um­pire Carl­ton Best was killed by rob­bers at the age of 38.

It is un­der­stood that Best a res­i­dent of San­gre Grande went miss­ing two days ago and his rel­a­tives re­port­ed this to the po­lice who went in search of him.

A body was found just af­ter mid­night on Wednes­day in the Aranguez area and his rel­a­tives were called in to iden­ti­fy. To their hor­ror it was Carl­ton and an au­top­sy has been or­dered for Fri­day to de­ter­mine the cause of his death.
