Police in ‘B’ Division are on the hunt for two men wanted for questioning in connection with
the murder of Mohan Ball, a 49-year-old domestic worker. Ball’s body was discovered in a trench at Williamsburg, Corentyne, on Thursday with marks of violence about the body.
According Commander of ‘B’ Division, Ian Amsterdam, “Based on information received, we are searching for two persons we need for questioning, and who we would have not yet found.” However, according to a police source two persons were picked up early yesterday morning and taken into custody for a period of time at the Albion Police Station.
They were subsequently released on station bail. They were reportedly questioned about the whereabouts of the two suspects who might have committed the act.
The body of Mohan Ball, 49, of Williamsburg, Corentyne, Berbice, was discovered by children, who were in the vicinity of the trench.
