A 19-year-old has reportedly confessed to killing Mabura businessman Colin McLean, who was slain in his home last Sunday.
Kaieteur News understands that the teen told investigators that he committed the act during a struggle with the 52-year-old shopkeeper. He is likely to be charged this week after a post mortem is conducted.
The suspect was detained on Monday at his Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo home. Kaieteur News was informed that he had moved to Mabura some time ago and knew McLean.
Investigators have been told that the youth was seen leaving the shopkeeper’s premises on Sunday, shortly after residents heard someone screaming inside McLean’s home.
A relative, who saw the body at the Linden Hospital, said that the shopkeeper had been repeatedly stabbed behind the head.
McLean, of 88 Wismar Housing Scheme, Linden, is believed to have been murdered at around 04.00 hrs on Sunday, when the lights in the community went off.
This newspaper was told that at around that time, neighbours heard a loud scream and upon checking some hours later, found McLean’s bloodied corpse. Relatives said that a quantity of cash and gold were missing. McLean had been operating his food and beverage business at the location for the past 10 years.
Mavis McLean-Thompson, the slain man’s sister, said she was told that customers visited her brother’s shop early on Sunday and saw it open. They reportedly went to the Mabura Station after calling repeatedly at the shop and getting no response. She added that neighbours provided investigators with details pertaining to the suspect, who they claimed left Mabura shortly after McLean was killed.
