Police in ‘B’ Division have detained seven more persons as they continue their investigations into the gruesome murder of a teenage boy and two men whose bullet-riddled bodies were discovered at the Kokrit Savannah, Mibicuri Creek, on Friday.
Commander of B Division, Ian Amsterdam, told Kaieteur News, that they believe they are on the right track.
“We feel that we have the correct persons in custody to give us a big break in the case”.
Amsterdam stressed that the men are still being questioned and that the police are working towards a possible confession.
According to information gathered, the men that have been arrested were working on the farm where the crime was committed. Information also suggests that the motive of the crime may be more than the victims being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Meanwhile, according to a police source, three of those detained have been tested for gunpowder residue and investigators are awaiting results which they hope will point to the suspects.
The bodies of 37-year-old Pawan Chandradeo, called ‘Suresh’ of Lot 163 Mibicuri, BBP; 33-year-old Naresh Rooplall called ‘Ticka Bai’ of No. 77 Village, Corentyne and 15-year-old Jaikarran Chandradeo called ‘Kevin’ of Mibicuri North, were found around 09.00 hrs on Friday in a backdam at Mibicuri, Black Bush Polder, Corentyne.
The slain teen still had a bag with fish slung around his shoulder.
The corpses bore gaping shotgun wounds to the heads and upper bodies.
Three shotgun cartridges were found near the bodies. Investigators are trying to ascertain whether any of the detained individuals own a shotgun.
According to reports, the victims were found by Sudama Jagmohan, a rice farmer of Mibicuri South, Black Bush Polder and his workmen.
According to Jagmohan, he was on his way to his rice field at Cookrite area where he also has hassars.
Jaghoman said that on their way to his farm, they group found the bodies lying on a dam in his rice-land.
He immediately called a neighbour who informed the police.
The police, led by Deputy Superintendent of Police, Marlon Taylor and residents, secured boats and journeyed to the area where they eventually came upon the graphic scene.
Shoba Devi Luckicharan, the mother of Naresh Rooplall, told Kaieteur News that her son ventured to the backdam to catch fish.
With him were her son-in-law and two grandsons, Jaikarran and Alvin.
According to reports, 13-year old Alvin Chanderdeo, who accompanied them, was left at a pump station on a dam, as the others went further into the savannahs to fish.
The lad stayed at the pump station from where he reportedly heard gunshots.
Post Mortem Examinations are expected to be conducted today.
