No. 5 residents burn tyres for Henry boys
Even as the Police Force is vigorously pursuing international help to probe the gruesome murders of 16-year-old Isaiah Henry, his cousin 18-year-old Joel Henry, residents of Number Five Village, West Coast Berbice have again launched a fiery protest calling for justice.
On Sunday, the residents lit tyres on fire blocking the public road.
Regional Chairman of Region 5, Vickchand Ramphal told the News Room that he received reports of the incident and the Police were informed. He said the protest is in relation to justice for the Henry boys.
The mutilated bodies of the teen cousins were found on September 6 with several chop wounds in Cotton Tree.
Their gruesome murders sparked violent protests across the country. Three days after the Henry boys were killed, Number Three Village resident 17-year-old Haresh Singh was discovered in a bloodied state in a rice field on the way to his farm on September 9. He died while on the way to the New Amsterdam Hospital.
The Guyana Police Force recently revealed that talks are underway to secure the services of one of the world’s foremost agencies in forensic anthropology to support the investigation of the Force into the murders of the three boys.
The Argentine Team of Forensic Anthropology which has worked on high profile cases in many parts of the world has offered to send a team to Guyana including a forensic pathologist, a forensic anthropologist and a forensic radiologist. The team will bring the equipment they need.
The Force said the team will remain in Guyana for a week and a Report of the Team’s findings will be made available within a month.
