Wanted bulletin issued for suspect in murder of Tiger Bay man
A wanted bulletin was issued on Wednesday for 42-year-old Osafo Sereste Grundall of Freeman Street, East La, Penitence, Georgetown.
The Guyana Police Force in a statement said Grundall is wanted in connection with the murder of 27-year-old Christopher Dale of Tiger Bay, Georgetown.
Anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of Osafo Sereste Grundall is asked to contact the police on telephone numbers 227-1270, 225-6940, 226-7476, 266-1389, 227-2128, 225-8196, 226-6978, 911 or the nearest police station. All information will be treated with the strictest confidence.
The police had reported that Dale was shot and killed while attending a party that attracted some 500 persons at Hill Street, Lodge, Georgetown, early Tuesday.
The police report noted that Christopher left his house in the company of a friend at around 01:15h to attend the party.
At about 06:00h, he was shot once to the abdomen while the party was in full swing.
According to the report, a taxi driver of Tucville Housing Scheme stated that he was driving on Mandela Avenue when he was stopped by three men, who were carrying the bleeding Christopher.
Together, they transported the victim to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The scene was processed by crime scene technicians and the deceased was swabbed for gunshot residue. Three persons were also arrested in connection with the murder.
Meanwhile, Grundall, called ‘Curlup’, is no stranger to the police. In September 2020, he had to stand trial in the High Court for manslaughter.
Grundall and his co-accused, James Fraser, called “Damo”, of Garnett Street, Campbellville, were initially indicted for the capital offence of murder, for which a Preliminary Inquiry (PI) was held at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court.
The duo was jointly charged for murdering Marlon Rodney, known as “George” between April 25 and April 30, 2019, at Norton Street, Georgetown.
