Venezuelan woman found dead in shallow grave in Reg. 7
Police are investigating the murder of 49-year-old Deissy Antury Perdomo, a Venezuelan national, whose body was found in a “four feet wide hole, partly covered with mud and dry leaves,” on April 26, 2022.
Police Headquarters in a statement Wednesday revealed that multiple chop wounds were observed on her body.
Her reputed husband, Vladimir Marquez is in police custody assisting with the investigations as detectives are on the hunt for two other men – also Venezuelan nationals – whom she was last seen in the company of.
It is suspected that she was murdered between April 23-26.
The police report noted that Perdomo was a clothes vendor at Eteringbang in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) and was also a pork-knocker at ‘Cores’ backdam.
An investigation conducted so far revealed the husband left for Venezuela on April 22 and on April 23, the woman was seen leaving the backdam in the company of the two men.
They reportedly went to Eteringbang landing where they shopped groceries and imbibed in alcohol; they later went back into the backdam the same day.
On April 26, 2022, the husband returned from Venezuela but was unable to contact his wife. Police said he formed a search party when he found her in the shallow grave.
Checks were made for the two Venezuelan men but it was found that they were last seen on April 24 leaving for Venezuela.
The investigation is ongoing.
