– say they can’t identify Blackman’s killers
Two prison warders have stated that they witnessed mentally ill ex-cop Solomon Blackman inflict some of the blows which claimed the life of fellow inmate Dyal Singh. But the warders claim that they could not identify any of the prisoners who stabbed and beat Blackman to death.
Prison officials said that the warders gave the statements on Monday after being questioned by detectives who are continuing their investigations into the recent double-murder in the Camp Street jail.
Kaieteur News understands that the prison officers claimed that they arrived in time to see Blackman inflict the final blows on the hapless Dyal in the Capital dormitory.
But according to a source, they claimed that the mob which attacked Blackman was so large that they could not identify the individuals.
The inmates had turned on the former TSU rank after he bludgeoned his victim.
