Police investigators being deployed to probe double murder in Reg. 7
A team of investigators is being dispatched to a mining camp located in a remote Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) area following reports of a double murder.
Police Commander, Superintendent Dion Moore, told the News Room on Thursday that the report was received earlier in the morning, but details remain sketchy.
The Commander was able to, however, confirm that two persons succumbed at the Black Water camp and “appeared to have been stabbed”.
“The information is now coming in…accessibility is one of the key issues so we are hoping to use a chopper to head there because it is off Iteringbang,” Commander Moore disclosed.
According to reports in other sections of the media, the two deceased are males who worked at the camp and were only identified as Niles and Richard.
A gun, which one of the men carries, is reportedly missing and a dog was also found dead.
The News Room will provide more details as they become available.
