Car owner wanted in teacher killing probe seeking to clear his name

The owner of the car that is allegedly linked to the death of school teacher Kescia Branche is set to return to the country soon and is willing to cooperate with the police in clearing his name.

Despite Acting Crime Chief Paul Williams proclaiming last week that the Guyana Police Force will solve the crime, the investigators are yet to lay any charge against the persons that have been arrested and questioned.

Information reaching Stabroek New has revealed that the owner of the car, Matthew Munroe, is still in the United States of America.

Munroe had reportedly told the police that he had left the country to attend his niece’s 16th birth anniversary and that he had nothing to do with Branche’s death. He is reportedly set to return to the country soon.

Munroe had reportedly left the country the day Branche’s body was found.

Branche, 22, a mother of one and a teacher at Richard Ishmael Secondary School, was found next to a coconut tree along Cemetery Road, Georgetown, obliquely opposite the cemetery office, sometime around 5 am three Sundays ago. She succumbed to her injuries two days later in the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital.

She had sustained head injuries and a broken foot. The doctor who treated her told her family that the head injuries appeared to be consistent with blows to the head.

Branche was seen leaving the Blue Martini nightclub on Upper Lamaha Street in Newtown in the company of the two on-duty constables.

After leaving the nightclub, the trio had ventured to a barbeque spot on Mandela Avenue.

While waiting on their order, one of the constables reportedly told investigators that he left to use the washroom and when he returned he did not see Branche. When he asked his colleague, who had remained with her about her whereabouts, he was told that she had left with a taxi.

A post-mortem examination revealed that she died as a result of brain haemorrhaging and blunt trauma to the brain.
