Could an irate husband who was incensed over an extra-marital affair have orchestrated last Friday’s brutal killing of a teenage boy and two men in the Corentyne?
That is one of the leads detectives were following up last night, as they continued investigations into the slaying of Pawan Chandradeo, Naresh Rooplall and Jaikarran Chandradeo, whose bullet-riddled corpses were found last Friday in the backdam at Mibicuri, Black Bush Polder, Corentyne.
Kaieteur News understands that investigators are paying a keen interest in one of the detained men, after being informed that a relative of the suspect was having an affair with one of the slain men.
Detectives have been told that this individual had invited the trio to go on the ill-fated fishing trip, but had later left them.
There are reports that he had complained about mosquitoes and had left.
“Information received stated that one of the men in custody who invited the victims on the fishing trip was with them at the time of the incident but alleges that he left for the Koker and left the victims alive.
His story was later confirmed by one of the security guards at the Koker.
According to a police source, it was later learnt that Rooplall’s wife and the aforementioned suspect previously shared a relationship.
Police have detained at least nine people, including a rice farmer and some of his workers. Commander of ‘B’ Division Ian Amsterdam yesterday again expressed confidence of a breakthrough.
“We are learning that a number of persons played a role in the incident but we have no concrete suspect as yet. The police are working around the clock trying to put the pieces together to quickly bring the killers to justice. What we have right now are persons who would have the opportunity to commit the act.”
According to Commander Amsterdam, results of the post mortem conducted yesterday by Government Pathologist, Dr. Vivekanand Brijmohan revealed that 15-year-old Jaikarran Chandradeo called ‘Kevin’ of Mibicuri North and 33-year-old Naresh Rooplall called ‘Ticka Bai’ of No. 77 Village, Corentyne died from shock and haemorrhage, while 37-year-old Pawan Chandradeo, called ‘Suresh’ of Lot 163 Mibicuri, BBP died of shock and haemorrhage, lacerations to the brain and a fractured skull.
Amsterdam also stated that the men in custody are not licensed firearm holders. He said this suggested that the murder weapon may be an unlicensed firearm.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum disclosed yesterday that ranks from the Major Crimes Unit have joined investigators at ‘B’ Division.
The bodies of Chandradeo, Rooplall and Chandradeo, were found around 09.00 hrs on Friday.
The slain teen still had a bag with fish slung around his shoulder.
The corpses bore gaping shotgun wounds to their 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, the group found the bodies lying on a dam in his rice-land.
He immediately called a neighbour who informed the police.
According to reports, 13-year old Alvin Chanderdeo, who had gone with the others, 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.
