Witness recounts discovery of brother’s body in septic tank
Taking the witness stand in the trial of Desiree Jeffers, who is accused of murdering her common-law partner Igris Bobb-Blackman, Brentnol Bobb-Blackman yesterday recalled peeping into a septic tank and seeing part of his brother’s body wrapped in a carpet.
Jeffers is on trial before Justice Dawn Gregory and a 12-member jury for the murder of Igris, who was an ex-policeman.
Brentnol said he would visit his brother’s house at Parfait Harmonie, West Bank Demerara for religious functions.
He said after Igris went missing, he made a report at the La Grange Police Station and noticed that Jeffers also turned up at the station to make a missing person report.
He stated that he had visited his brother’s house and searched for him but did not find him.
