Wife, children still being grilled over gunning down of Berbice farmer


As the investigation continues into the murder of Gregory Adolphus Pluck Reynolds, detectives are still questioning his wife, daughter and son.

Commander of the Division Yonette Stephens told the News Room that the trio remains in the custody of the Police.

The News Room understands that detectives observed loopholes in the statements by the trio following the murder of Reynolds who was shot dead by three men at his Number 8 Village, West Coast Berbice, Region 5 home on Monday night.

Sources said their statements were conflicting.

The rice farmer’s body was found in the lower flat of his home with gunshot injuries.

His sister Barbara Pluck- King previously told the media she believes that her brother was not killed during the course of robbery but rather it appears to be a hit.

The woman also told the News Room that her brother had $600,000 in his possession at the time of the incident and that money was not stolen.

She had also noticed an injury to his head.

The sister said that the man’s wife, who was sitting in the hammock, was not hurt during the incident and was still wearing all her jewellery.

A post mortem conducted Tuesday concluded that Reynolds died from shock and hemorrhage due to multiple gunshot injuries.
