Ranks from the Criminal Investigation Department are now part of a team that is investigating the Good Friday night hit and run death in Diamond Housing Scheme.
This was disclosed yesterday by Traffic Chief Neil Semple, who said that investigators are still checking on the vehicle owner’s claims that someone else was at the wheel when Ramona Harris was killed.
Senior Superintendent Semple confirmed that the owner is claiming that an overseas-based relative was the culprit.
The Traffic Chief said that the Better Hope, East Coast Demerara resident alleged that he was at home on Good Friday night and had loaned the car to the relative.
He reportedly claimed that when the relative returned the car he observed that it had sustained some damage.
The owner alleged that he suspected that the vehicle had been involved in a serious mishap, and this allegedly led to him visiting the Brickdam Police Station the following day accompanied by his attorney.
He also claimed that the relative has returned overseas.
Semple said that the investigators have verified that an overseas-based relative of the vehicle owner was in Guyana and left the country the day after the accident.
Kaieteur News understands that although a broken mirror with the licence number HB 6471 was found at the scene, the vehicle is now privately operated and has a PMM licence plate.
Ramona Harris, who has a one-year-old daughter, was walking along the main road in Diamond Housing Scheme around 22:00 hrs on Good Friday when she was struck from behind by a speeding car.
She was dragged about 70 feet from the point of impact.
The driver continued heading east along the same roadway before reportedly turning into Grove Housing Scheme.
