One suspect in custody for DJ’s murder


One of three suspects in connection to the murder of Brian “DJ Viper” Pittam is in Police custody.

Pittam, of Good Hope, East Coast Demerara, was reportedly chopped to death by three men at about 21:00hrs at Laluni, Soesdyke/Linden Highway.

Police Headquarters in a statement disclosed that Pittam was drinking at a shop with his father-in-law Kumar Bacchus – a 51-year-old truck driver – when the three suspects confronted Kumar and dealt him a lash to his face.

Pittam then intervened and was chopped several about his body. The trio then rode off on their motorcycles in an unknown direction.

The man’s left thumb, index finger and middle fingers were severed and his left wrist was partially severed. He also received a deep chop wound to the back of the neck.

Pittam was picked up by public spirited citizens and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he was pronounced dead.

Investigations are ongoing.
