‘Fatboy’ to face trial for murder of George Bacchus

Delon ‘Fatboy’ Reynolds has been arraigned in the High Court for the murder of self-confessed death squad informant George Bacchus.

The indictment was read to him by Justice Rishi Persaud on Monday and the trial was adjourned to yesterday. Reynolds was unrepresented at the hearing.

Bacchus was found dead in his Princes Street home on June 24, 2004 after he made bombshell revelations about a death squad operating in the city, for which he said he once gathered information. His brother Shafeek had been killed a few months prior.

Funeral parlour co-owner Debra Douglas and her nephew Fabian ‘Fabie’ Jessop had been jointly charged along with Reynolds with the murder of Bacchus but they were subsequently freed owing to insufficient evidence.
