Investigations are continuing into the circumstances surrounding the suspected execution style murder of Angoy’s Avenue resident Richard Dey, 40, a father of two.
Dey’s body was discovered in an alley leading to his home at Angoy’s Avenue with a suspected bullet wound to his head and a laceration to his throat at about 22:30 hours on Saturday.
It is understood that Dey is a mechanic and would mostly ply his trade in the interior, including the Berbice River.
According to information, Dey owns a shiny Green Car, PRR 5958.
On Saturday evening Dey, his reputed wife Ongel Lindie, a teacher, and their two kids went out earlier and returned home around 20:30 hrs. Dey subsequently left home around 22:00hrs to go out and was walking toward his car, a walk which would take about a ½ minute, when a gunshot rang out.
According to a relative, when she heard the explosion, she did not pay much mind.
Nevertheless she peered outside and saw that Dey’s car was still parked where he had left it.
She assumed that Dey was in the vehicle talking to someone on his cellular phone since her calls to his phone went unanswered.
The woman still did not think too much of it, but continued to survey the area where the car was parked.
But as the woman was preparing to go out and investigate, a teenager who frequently uses the alley saw the body and alerted the police.
By this time, the woman had made her way toward the car and stumbled upon the bleeding body of Dey slumped by a drain.
When the police arrived, they examined the body and found it had what they suspected to be a bullet wound to the head, while there was a gaping wound.
Family members were reluctant to divulged information, but the man’s demise is being treated as a hit. It was revealed that he was involved in some shady deals and the drug trade.
It was reported that he owed persons large sums of money, especially in the Berbice River areas and was being marked. He would usually hang around persons of shady character.
Robbery has been ruled out since the man’s pockets were reportedly not ruffled and the $15,000 he had left home with was recovered.
Several pieces of jewelry which he was wearing at the time were also not touched. However his cell phone was not found.
His body is at the New Amsterdam Hospital mortuary awaiting a Post Mortem Examination.
