New Amsterdam Labourer killed by drinking buddy
Mark Griffith, a 40-year old labourer of Symthfield, New Amsterdam Berbice is dead after he was found bleeding profusely from a chest wound around 17:10h Sunday.

Police Headquarters reported that Griffith and the suspect were drinking alcohol all day at his Symthfield home when they began arguing. Griffith’s sister told police that she parted the argument; however, at about 17:10h a friend called her and said her brother was lying in a trench bleeding.
He was taken to the New Amsterdam Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment. Police investigations are ongoing.
