Police investigating double homicide
Homicide investigators are investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of a businesswoman and her paramour after their bodies were discovered at their business premises located at Ekereku Hill top, Kamarang on Sunday.
Investigators revealed that 45-year-old Selima Norton, AKA ‘Shelly’ of New Providence Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara and 37-year-old Kurt Reynolds of Silverballi Street, Meadow Brook Gardens, who were operating a business at Ekereku, had an argument over the mismanagement of their business by Reynolds.
As a result, the argument escalated into a heated encounter, during which it was alleged that Norton armed herself with a two-bladed knife and inflicted two stabs to Reynolds’ abdomen and left foot. Reynolds then allegedly, took away the weapon and stabbed Norton multiple times about her body, after which they both collapsed some distance apart and bled to death.
The bodies are presently at the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home awaiting post mortem.
A blood stained double blade knife was recovered at the scene.
