Police are probing a new lead in the alleged murder of 22-year-old Kescia Branche as her ex-lover and four policemen remain under close arrest.
Police have impounded a car at the Brickdam Police Station, which is believed to be at the center of the young teacher’s death. News Room was reliably informed that the person who was driving the car and who was also identified as the owner of the car, is the same person who Branche last had telephone contact with.
News Room also understands that the man left the country the following morning after Branche was found unconscious at the corner of Louisa Row and Princes Street, Georgetown on November 05, 2017.
A post-mortem which was performed on the remains of the teacher found that she died as a result of blunt trauma to the head and haemorrhage. The News Room was told that the injuries are consistent with her either jumping or being pushed from a moving vehicle.
At the moment the man who was seen touching the young teacher inappropriately while she was in the Blue Martini nightclub has since been released on station bail. He is however required to check in at the police station.
The father of Branche’s 3 – year-old son remains in custody and according to detectives, his story is still not adding up. The detectives have confirmed that the mobile phone which he was found with is not the same one that the teacher used daily but rather the one their child would use to play games.
Additionally, the four police ranks remain under close arrest. While Police Constables Wilson and Fraser are the ones who investigators have much interest in, the other two ranks continue to provide information to detectives as requested.
Branche, a teacher of the Richard Ishmael Secondary School died without regaining consciousness at the Georgetown Public Hospital on November 07, 2017.
