The man who was held in connection with the murder of seven-year-old Dacwaun Sutherland has been released after he posted $20,000 station bail.
Police sources on Thursday said that they were unable to find any concrete evidence against the 24-year-old suspect, thus forcing them to release the man.
The source said that the man was arrested on Saturday after rumours in the Sophia community suggested that the child was last seen in his company.
Sutherland was found floating in a canal in the Sophia area, one day after he was reported missing by his mother, Zon Parks.
A post mortem report revealed that the boy was sodomised and was probably submerged in a canal until he drowned.
The child’s mother was adamant that her only child must have been slain in broad daylight.
The woman still pleads for those in the community who have any related knowledge to come forward with any information.
The child’s body was found in a canal in ‘C’ Field, Sophia.
Woman allegedly steals father’s money
Sheyante Adams, a 22-year-old mother of one who is a supervisor at Qualfon Guyana Inc, was remanded to prison on Thursday after she was slapped with four counts of fraudulent conversion. The woman allegedly converted monies that her father had sent to deposit into his bank account.
It was alleged that last September, being solely entrusted with $60,000 by Gregory Adams, she converted the money to her own use.
Another charge stated that the woman, being solely entrusted with $80,000 by Gregory Adams, converted the money for her own use.
A third charge stated that the woman, on April 20, being solely entrusted with $60,000 by Gregory Adams, she converted the money for her own use. The last charge alleged that the woman on February 25, 2009 being solely entrusted with $60,000, converted same to her own use.
She was unrepresented yesterday in court. In her defence, the woman told the court that her father usually sends money from Suriname for her.
She added that he never told her that the money was to be deposited into his bank account. The woman further told the magistrate that she is being framed by one of her father’s friend.
Gregory Adams, who was present in court, said that he trusted his daughter and never expected that she would do something like that.
He told the magistrate that when he came back to Guyana, he was shocked to learn that his bank account had been emptied.
“She is my eldest child and this is what she do me….I mine she from six years old after her mother died,” cried the man.
The man even produced a fake bank statement to the court, which his daughter allegedly gave to him.
Police Prosecutor Stephen Telford objected to bail, and told the court that more charges are expected to be laid against the woman.
The magistrate remanded the woman and she is now expected to make another court appearance on August 6.
Jamaican record producer tries to reverse fortunes of Sheriff Night Club
Jamaican record producer “Big Stone” will launch a weekly Entertainment package this evening at the Sheriff Night Club on Sheriff Street, Georgetown.
“Big Stone,” who has impacted positively on the entertainment industry since being in Guyana over the last six months, says that the aim of “Showdown at the Sheriff” is to give the real talented entertainers of Guyana an avenue where they will be paid to showcase their abilities while giving Guyanese and visitors the opportunity to see them perform live.
“Showdown at the Sheriff” will feature Syd Hooper, Ras I-Son, Fire Fred, Lisa Punch and comedian Pastor Fix-it.
The show will continue every Saturday night at the Sheriff Night Club and according to “Big Stone” Brutal TV will be there to videotape the show and it will be shown on Channel Two.
The Jamaican, who was born in the Parish of St. Anns, was baptized Claude Sinclair and is a graduate of the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music (1980 -1984).
Prior to taking up the Scholarship in the USA, “Big Stone” served in the Jamaica Defence Force and the Jamaica Constabulary Force. On his return to Jamaica in 1995, Sinclair formed Big Stone Records and since then has produced music with Jamaican artistes.
“Big Stone” says he wants to educate the artistes as to their responsibilities in the music industry.
The Jamaican has been visiting Guyana since 1991 and says that the country is blessed with enormous talent.
Currently, “Big Stone” is producing music with Guyanese artistes and this will be released shortly.
