Local investigators have informed their counterparts from the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigations about their breakthrough in the case involving murdered Alpha Guest House proprietrix, Roselaine Hall.
The FBI had initially shown an interest in the case since it involved a citizen of the United States.
During the initial stages of the investigations, agents from the FBI had journeyed to Guyana and had visited the scene where Hall’s decomposed remains were discovered.
It is not yet clear what assistance is being sought from the US investigation agency, but this newspaper was reliably informed that DNA testing might be an area attracting the attention of the local investigators.
Kaieteur News understands that although the remains were identified as Hall’s from the clothing attached to it, there are still some question marks.
However, following the arrest and subsequent charging of Hall’s ex husband, Alex Barker, detectives were able to narrow down their investigations.
Barker appeared in court on Friday and was remanded. This was following his arrest last Tuesday at Bartica, where he was reportedly hiding out for more than a year.
Hall’s husband at the time of her death, Romeo Rockerfeller, was also detained after Barker reportedly implicated him, but was subsequently released on police bail.
A female relative of Rockerfeller was also briefly questioned by detectives on Friday.
According to a source, although a suspect has been charged, the case is still being vigorously investigated since detectives believe that Barker may not be the only person responsible for Hall’s disappearance and subsequent murder.
