Police probing murder at Eteringbang

Police at Eteringbang on the Cuyuni River are probing the death of a North West man who was allegedly beaten to death on Friday evening.

The deceased has been identified Owen Williams.

Police Commander of F Division (Interior Locations) Ravindradat Budhram yesterday confirmed the death and said the killing is being treated as a murder. He explained that the suspect, who was taken into custody after the death of Williams, is being questioned.

According to the police commander, on Friday the suspect and Williams were consuming alcohol when an argument ensued leading to a fight. As a result, Williams was badly beaten and later succumbed as a result of his injuries.

Stabroek News was however told that the argument which led to the death of Williams, started after Williams asked the suspect for monies owing to him.

Budhram noted that they are continuing investigations and a post-mortem examination is scheduled for today.
