The prime suspect in the gruesome murder of two men at the famous #63 beach on the Corentyne Coast has reportedly confessed under interrogation.
The News Room was reliably informed that the Major Crimes Unit of the Guyana Police Force made a breakthrough in the case after they arrested approximately six persons at the weekend.
The prime suspect, who is in his 20s, of Number 65 Village had reportedly stolen a “water tank” from one of the victims, Canada-based Guyanese, Vivekanand Narpatty, 71.
