Investigators were forced to release the landlord’s son after he was detained for three days as a suspect responsible for deliberately setting a fire which left a two-storey apartment building in rubbles and claimed the life of a couple and their 14-year-old son.
The man was reportedly seen leaving in hurry minutes before the nine-room apartment building went up in flames more than a week ago.
Police said that the case is not over and they are currently waiting on the Guyana Fire Service to wrap their side of the investigation before proceeding.
While the landlord’s son was still in custody, investigators had revealed that they had received new information pointing them towards a suspect who might have had a hand in the blaze.
Kaieteur News had also learnt that fire officials had concluded that a flammable liquid was used to ignite the deadly blaze.
Moreover, these officials are currently awaiting test results from the rubbles to determine what was the flammable liquid used.
On June 27, just after 17:00 hrs, the apartment building located at E-Half Sixth Street, Cummings Lodge, went up in flames.
A 46-year-old shopkeeper, Marvin Lewis, his wife Beverly Miller, 40 and their teenage son, Duwhaul Ifill, all perished in the fire.
