-ex-cop Otis Grant released on $100,000 bail
Four men reportedly received $400,000 to execute the 72-year-old Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris, who
was gunned down in her home last June.
Police are said to be following leads that the men received the money from a fifth individual. However, investigators believe that a sixth man is the actual mastermind.
Reports emanating from the courts indicate that the killing was linked to a prolonged property dispute.
Meanwhile, ex-cop Otis Grant, who was being questioned about Parris’s murder, was released yesterday on $100,000 station bail. He had spent 72 hours in police custody.
Police said that Grant, who was accompanied by his lawyer, presented himself at the Criminal Investigation Department, Headquarters, Eve Leary on Tuesday.
According to the police, subsequent investigations led to a search on a building under construction at Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara, during which a .22 rifle and a .243 rifle were found. The building is located a mere two doors from where Grant lived.
A source said that the man’s property was searched but nothing was found.
So far, four persons have been remanded for the murder of Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris, who was slain on June 30, last.
Orin Hinds, 35, of Burnham Boulevard, Mocha, East Bank Demerara; Cleon Hinds, 34, of 23 Middle Road, Albouystown; and Kevin October, 29, of Second Street, Agricola, East Bank Demerara, appeared on Thursday before Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, jointly charged with murder.
They were not required to plead to the indictable charge.
A fourth person, Roy Jacobs, had appeared at the Magistrates’ Court two days before his alleged accomplices and was also charged with the capital offence.
At Jacobs’s hearing it was alleged that he had been the mastermind in the plot to end the elderly woman’s life. It was said that money had been given to the man to kill Mrs. Fiedtkou-Parris, who had been involved in a bitter land dispute matter which was before the courts.
Jacobs had reportedly told the police that he had been hired to carry out the act. He further claimed that he hired other persons to assist him.
Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris was murdered at her residence when men had entered her home requesting to see her. According to reports, Parris was heading to the door to inquire as to the persons requesting her presence, when she was shot several times.
She was later pronounced dead while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
