Linden woman died from single gunshot to head
A post-mortem examination conducted on the body of 20-year-old Shonnette Dover, who was missing for more than three weeks, found that the woman died as a result of a single gunshot injury to the head.
The young woman’s body was found in a sitting position in a shallow grave in the backyard of her fiancé, Shaquawn Alleyne’s house at Canvas City, Wismar Linden on April 30. According to police reports, the young woman’s body was identified by her father and aunt.
The autopsy was conducted by Dr Nehaul Singh, on Monday at around 11:00 hrs, at the Memorial Garden Mortuary. Though this autopsy was performed on Dover, Dr Singh extracted three ribs from the body, which will be taken to the Guyana Forensic Science Laboratory (GFSL), where they will be analysed for genetic identification.
According to police reports, Dover’s 15-year-old sister confessed to detectives that she saw when Alleyne shot and killed her on the night of April 3 and then later buried her in the backyard of his house, in the presence of his father.
However, from the numerous Facebook posts made by Alleyne following the young woman’s disappearance, it appeared otherwise. He was even involved in numerous search parties for her.
Since Dover’s decomposed body was found buried behind the Canvas City, Wismar, Linden house she shared with Alleyne, several voice recordings have surfaced with him in a desperate plea for help to escape to French Guiana.
Police have issued a wanted bulletin for Alleyne, for questioning in relation to the murder committed between April 3 to 30, 2021. Police said that his alias is “Iswe”.
Anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of Shaquawn Alleyne is asked to contact the police on telephone numbers 444-3406, 444-3297, 444-3351, 444-3512 444-24429, 442-0759, 225-3650, 226-1928, 911 or the nearest police station.
