Guyanese murdered in Trinidad…T&T cops check camera footage for killer’s ID
Relatives of 28 year-old Tyrone Achia who was gunned down on Tuesday last in Trinidad said they have been reliably informed that officials from the Twin Island have surveillance footage from the area.
A relative of the dead man told this publication last evening that investigators are currently looking at the tape with the hope of identifying Achai’s killer.
Meanwhile, relatives were able to ship his remains back to Guyana and arrangements are being made for burial. However, relatives said they are awaiting the arrival of one of the man’s siblings who is currently at sea but is expected home soon.
The dead man’s mother, Shanaz Achia said her son last spoke to her on Monday and did not indicate that he was having any trouble. The woman said her son had been living in the Twin Island Republic for the past five years but would return to Guyana at every chance he got. She told this publication that her son was a supervisor at a restaurant and bar.
She added that he was renting an apartment but moved to another building just across the road and would still frequent the previous apartment.
“The owner of the apartment asked him to move to another apartment since her mother alone stayed in it and she is an elderly person.”
Mrs. Achia said on Tuesday night her son went to the old apartment to do his laundry and when he was returning to the apartment he currently occupied he was shot.
The victim last visited Guyana in December of last year when he returned to attend a cousin’s wedding.
