Mother fears her son’s murder will go unpunished


A Lima Sands, Region Two woman remains saddened over the recent murder of her 27-year-old son Delon Hendricks who was brutally attacked on November 05, 2022 and left for dead on the Lusignan main access road, East Coast Demerara.

Margaret Hendricks’ grief is compounded by her belief that police investigators are not prudent in the case and as such is calling for a higher tier of attention to be given.

Speaking to the News Room on Friday, the saddened mother explained that since her son was murdered three weeks ago, no one was arrested and held responsible even with CCTV footage available.

The mother claims that persons who saw her son moments before and had knowledge of his death were not questioned.

“His brother-in-law saw. He knew he died and no one said anything until his body was found, he should be questioned.

“They called in the wife but the wife can’t identify no one because she hardly knows people,” Hendricks related.

She noted too that although persons knew her son died and were videoing, they were just informed of his death until one day after.

Meanwhile, a cousin Arlean Singh related that it’s the third murder in their family that is currently unsolved.
