Eight days after he hacked his reputed wife to death, the police are in the process of issuing a bulletin for a Vigilance, East Coast Demerara man who has so far been able to elude capture.
Relatives of Deon Stephens are of the opinion that the police are doing little to apprehend the suspect.
But police sources have indicated that they are checking every lead that is available to them to ensure that Stephens’s killer is brought to justice.
Initially, the police had received reports of the murder suspect’s body lying in the Buxton backlands and at least two treks were made to the area but no trace of the man was found.
“The police are not psychics. We have checked every lead, we checked the backlands and we will continue to do so until he is found,” a source at the Vigilance Police Station told this newspaper.
The source said that as recent as yesterday, ranks made checks at the home of the man’s mother.
“We heard that he was by his mother’s place and we checked. We even heard that he sleeps at a particular house but we came up nil,” the source said, adding that searches were also made at the Sophia home of the suspect’s brother.
Investigators are now checking to ascertain if the suspect has left the jurisdiction.
This newspaper understands that the police are already in possession of a photograph of the suspect and may soon be issuing a bulletin. They are also contemplating proceeding with murder charges against the suspect in his absence.
The advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions has already been sought.
