Families in shock as cops probe suspected murder/suicide at Sarah Johanna
Two families remain in disbelief as detectives probe the suspected murder-suicide of recently married couple Nicholas and Sasha Low-a-Chee whose bodies were discovered at their Sarah Johanna, East Bank Demerara house early Tuesday.
The News Room understands that both bodies were found with gunshot wounds and sleuths found the suspected firearm at the scene of the crime. According to information reaching the News Room, a brush cutter showed up at the property and realised something was amiss and so he contacted one of Nicholas’ uncles.
The uncle arrived at the scene and made the gruesome discovery.
The grief-stricken father of Sasha, Ricky Dass, told the News Room that he rang in New Year with the couple on Saturday in Diamond.
He said they had “no problems as far as I am concerned”. Dass did not see the bodies but one of his sons did. The son indicated to him that Sasha sustained a gunshot wound to the chest while it appears as if Nicholas was shot to the side.
The visibly distraught father last heard from his daughter on Sunday afternoon (January 2) when she told him that she was going to barbeque some chicken. He found out about her death from a colleague at his job at the bus park.
Sasha’s family, who expressed complete shock at her untimely death, described her as a loving person, who deeply cared for animals and children. Nicholas’s uncle, Samson Low-a-Chee shared that he was a quiet individual.
Nicholas was self-employed and did some farming. Sasha, a former teacher, assisted Nicholas with his business. The couple has been together since their high school days and only got married in August last year.
The bodies were removed are awaiting post mortem examination to determine the official cause of death. Police investigations are ongoing.
