During a telephone interview, the Commander assured that all the ‘necessary persons’ were contacted as part of the investigation but the suspect, a 25-year-old gold miner, is yet to be arrested.

Police Headquarters only identified the suspect as a resident of Leopold Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown and also from Tucville.
Fraser’s family gave the suspect’s name as Akeem Dazzel.
Fraser lived at the same address in one of the houses on the property.
Fraser died while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital. He was stabbed in his right side chest area, which according to the post-mortem examination (PME), was the cause of death.
