– Likely to make court appearance on Monday
The three suspects in the brutal murder of Soesdyke-based Agriculturist, Anthony Breedy are likely to make their first court appearance on Monday.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum said that the two suspects, who were captured on Thursday in a bushy area in the West Bank Berbice Village of Ithaca, have confessed to the murder of the remigrant.
Up to press time Blanhum said that investigators were trying to get as much information from the three suspects who are in custody so that they can build a solid case.
The Crime Chief said that the confessions that ranks received yesterday from the two murder suspects, who were on the run since the murder, are consistent with that provided by the prime suspect in Breedy’s murder, ex-convict Paul Goriah.
Goriah was nabbed on Tuesday on the East Coast Demerara, one day after the victim’s body was discovered. He implicated the two other suspects.
Kaieteur News was told that Goriah’s bloodstained shirt was found in Bagotville, West Bank Demerara, yesterday at the home of his girlfriend. She was arrested on Wednesday after ranks found some of the items stolen from the victim’s house, in a car that she was driving.
The dead man’s cellular phone was also found at her home.
The body of the 60-year-old Agriculturist was found around 11:00 hours on Monday in the lower flat of his house at Hill Foot, Soesdyke. His limbs were bound and he bore injuries to his head. His home was ransacked.
There was no sign of forced entry to the house, which suggested that he was killed by someone who was invited there. Goriah confirmed this in his statement to the investigators.
He told investigators that he met his victim at a bar near the Cheddi Jagan International Airport recently and they started a friendship.
On Saturday night, he told police that he called Breedy and enquired where he was and asked him if he could meet him. Breedy told him he was at a dance but agreed to meet with him. They met at the Soesdyke Junction and Breedy reportedly invited Goriah to his home.
According to a source, Goriah related that he had already planned with the two accomplices to rob the Agriculturist who lived alone.
He told detectives that he had arranged for the accomplices to hide at a certain spot and wait for a call from him after he would have entered Breedy’s house. He told his accomplices that he would leave the door open for them to get easy access to the house.
The plan worked well. Goriah said that he drank three bottles of Guinness—-investigators did find the three empty Guinness bottles in Breedy’s house.
When the time was right, he then called in his accomplices, who barged in, much to Breedy’s horror.
Breedy did not have enough time to raise an alarm since the men immediately set upon on him with pieces of wood, rendering him unconscious with the first set of blows.
The victim was then tied up and the killers continued to batter his body with wood and other heavy objects.
According to the source, the prime suspect even admitted that he picked up a concrete block and slammed it on Breedy’s head.
He showed investigators an abrasion on his feet where one of the blocks accidentally fell and struck him.
When the victim’s body became lifeless, the killers set about ransacking his house for valuables, which they eventually packed into his Sport Utility Vehicle.
After leaving the house, Goriah and his accomplices drove to the Bagotville home of his girlfriend where he gave her some of the loot that included EC$70 and the dead man’s cellular phone.
They then went to South Ruimveldt where they parted the rest of the booty.
But the ex-convict’s luck ran out on Tuesday when police arrested him on East Coast Demerara, shortly after he had stashed the stolen vehicle.
Goriah, who hails from the Timehri Squatting Area, was recently released from prison following Break and Enter and Larceny and narcotics convictions.
His accomplices were later captured after police received a tip off that they were hiding in Ithaca.
