– Female tenant in custody
A woman believed to be in her early fifties is currently in police custody assisting with investigations after she allegedly beat her landlord to death with a rolling pin.
According to reports, 62-year-old Azaad Ganie was found dead in the upper flat of his Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo, Sideline Dam house at around 20:00 hours on Monday.
This publication was told that the man was beaten to death by a woman to whom he had rented the lower flat of his building. The woman lived at the premises with her husband and three young grandchildren.
One of the dead man’s sons said he was at home on the Essequibo Coast when he received a telephone call saying that his father was dead.
“The person on the phone tell me if I didn’t believe I can call the police and then a police come on the phone and tell me yes, they find me father murder in the house.”
Yesterday several relatives gathered at the house trying to figure out what could have led to such a heinous crime. The man’s son related that from what he saw in his father’s house, the man had received a savage beating.
“It had blood all over the wall you could see how the blood splatter all over, and you can see li’l li’l pieces of what look like flesh, and when I reach here this morning (yesterday) I see she (the suspect) grandson”.
The man said he asked the woman’s grandson what happen and the young children related a very horrid story.
“He say that he see he grandmother sitting down on meh father and beating he in he head with a bellnah till de bellnah break”.
The man said he has since been told that his father’s attacker has been detained and is assisting with investigations.
The incident has sent shockwaves throughout the community as many said they still can’t believe such a peaceful man met such a gruesome death.
One neighbour said at around 14:00 hours on Monday she heard loud screams coming from the house but paid no mind as she merely thought her elderly neighbour had fallen ill. The woman said she however informed another neighbour about what she had heard and the man reportedly called Ganie’s brother who then contacted the police.
Other residents of the area said one of the woman’s grandsons when questioned about the screams which were heard coming from the house related “Meh grandmother beat he with a bellnah”. This raised suspicions and the police were called in.
Reports are that as the police were arriving at the location, the suspect was neatly dressed and was heading out of the street. However after being prompted by residents, police escorted the woman back to the house. Residents said when the police arrived at the scene they were forced to kick down the man’s door after calling and getting no response. Upon entering the premises they were greeted with a bloody scene and Ganie’s battered remains. Reports are that crime scene ranks removed a bloody and broken rolling pin from the scene.
Meanwhile a source close to the investigation said the woman has since admitted to beating her landlord after claiming that he was always ‘playing fresh’ with her. The woman only moved into the village some three months ago.
Investigations are ongoing.
