Guns, ammo found as probe continues into double murder
Two persons, including the wife of one of the victims, remain in police custody as investigators continue their probe into the murders of Ambrose Baharally, 28 and Martin Godette, 23.
The bodies of the young farmers were found on Sunday, January 14, 2018, at Grant Stelling Hope, Lower Pomeroon River, with gunshot wounds to their heads, in what appears to be an execution-style killing.
Police in a statement on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, noted that one of the persons, who is assisting with the investigation, led the police to a location where a bag was retrieved and examined.
The contents in the bag include a 9mm Beretta pistol with magazine, a .38 revolver, 16 live cartridges, 21 live .38 rounds, 19 live 9mm rounds, six live .32 rounds, two 9mm spent shells and fifty-one and a half grams of cannabis.
Police said that the contents reportedly belong to one of the murder victims; it was also noted that the hands of the two victims and the two persons in custody were swabbed for gunpowder residue.
News Room had reported that the victims were seen conversing with two suspects at about 15:10hrs on the day in question and shortly after, two loud explosions were heard and the suspects were seen fleeing the scene by boat.
The victims were discovered motionless and taken to the Charity Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival.
