Police have detained a 28-year-old Rupununi resident who allegedly buried his cousin in a shallow grave last month after clubbing the victim and stabbing him with an arrow.
An official said that the suspect was nabbed on Sunday at Kumu Village, Central Rupununi, and police are seeking legal advice to ascertain if he will be charged.
The body of Arnold Gordon, 24, a labourer of Crapaud Pond, Central Rupununi, was found in a grave around 16.30hrs on March 17 in an area known as Tiger Plate, also in Central Rupununi.
An arrow was embedded in his right armpit. An iron rod was also found near the murder scene.
The sole eyewitness to the killing is said to be a six-year-old boy, who is the slain man’s cousin.
According to reports, Gordon and his six-year-old cousin left home around 17:00hrs on March 16 to fish at a pond next to the Tiger Plate area. While in the area, Gordon encountered his cousin, who is unemployed, and an argument ensued.
It is alleged that the suspect picked up a piece of wood and a metal rod and struck Gordon.
The six-year-old, who was with Gordon, ran back home and told his grandmother.
When Gordon failed to return home the following day, Gordon’s mother reported the matter to a Toshao, who informed the police. The Toshao and a team conducted a search for Gordon and eventually located what appeared to be a shallow grave in some bushes about twenty feet from the suspect’s camp.
After a few minutes of digging, they saw a hand protruding from the grave. They notified police, who dug up the grave, which was about two feet deep, and found Gordon’s corpse.
