Police were up to late yesterday still trying to locate a 15-year-old boy who allegedly hacked his uncle to death in an area near the Barama River, North West District.
According to reports 50 year-old Michael Williams died sometime around 19:00 hours after he was badly chopped by his nephew.
The victim’s neck was almost severed.
This publication was told that Williams was heading to his home at the Kariako Mission when he stopped to take a rest. Reports are that the man was seen sitting on a log while his friend continued walking. Sources say that the man’s nephew was seen walking on the trail with a cutlass over his shoulder. According to persons from the area Williams and his nephew were seen arguing before the teen chopped his uncle, almost severing the victim’s neck.
The teen then calmly wiped off his blood stained cutlass in the mud before walking away. Some of Williams’ colleagues ran to his assistance but there was very little that could have been done. Sources say residents placed the victim on a makeshift stretcher and tried to take him to the Mission. However Williams died on the way.
This publication was told that Williams was immediately buried, but the remains will be exhumed to facilitate a post mortem examination.
A police team has been dispatched to the area.
