GUYANA:Man killed hours after registering his newborn baby


BROOKLYN, NY– Police are investigating a case in which a  36-year old gold miner was stabbed to death on Thursday night hours after he had returned with his wife from registering their newborn baby.

“It appears that the deceased was returning home when the suspect(s) attempted to rob him and stabbed him in the process,” police said in a statement, adding that the deceased lived in Kaneville, East Bank Demerara with his wife and his mother.

They said that the man and his wife had returned home after spending some time in Cuyuni to have his newborn baby registered.

The police statement quoted a family member as saying that he had been awakened by someone calling out to him and “upon checking he saw the now deceased lying motionless to the eastern side of his yard under a shed attached to his house with what appears to be blood about his body.”

The body was escorted to Diamond Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
