While the police have charged 24-year-old David Outar with the murder of Terry Lakhan, whose nude body with a rope tied around his neck was found in a wardrobe of his Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) home two Thursdays ago, a second suspect remains at large.
Outar and an accomplice reportedly murdered the father of one and then stuffed his body in a wardrobe before escaping with valuables from the dead man’s home.
Police arrested Outar two Saturdays ago and he confessed to the murder of Lakhan, who was a manager at Gafoors. The man also provided information on an accomplice, whom he claimed murdered the 53-year-old man.
On Wednesday, Outar was charged with the murder of Lakhan. According to information received, the victim had invited one of his killers (Outar) into his home on the night he was killed. It was Outar who invited an accomplice and then plotted to kill the man and rob his home. The killers worked as labourers at Gafoor’s.
Kaieteur News was reliably informed that Outar claimed that Lakhan invited him into his home to imbibe. He said that later that night the now dead man made ‘advances’ towards him.
The suspect claimed that he was upset and immediately left the victim’s home but returned later with a friend who was known to the 53-year-old man.
According to information received, the second suspect went into the bedroom with Lakhan and after some time, came out and told the other suspect about his plan to rob and kill the Gafoor’s Manager.
The men then strangled the father of one and tied a rope around his neck and to the wardrobe to make it look like suicide.
A post mortem confirmed that the victim had been strangled.
