Cops still seeking two suspects in murder of Cayenne vendor

Investigators working on the murder of French Guiana-based clothing vendor Purcell Moore are still on the hunt for two other suspects.

Commander of Police ‘A’ Division Marlon Chapman told Stabroek News that they are still working to capture the two suspects who are on the run. He explained that investigators have received information on the whereabouts of the suspects but searches conducted proved futile.

Police are currently seeking Wayne Chester, 20, of Friendship, EBD, and another suspect who has not been identified.

On December 23rd, Kelvin Persaud, 21, of Fourteenth Avenue, Diamond, EBD was charged with the murder of Moore before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

Moore was attacked around 7 am, at Old Road Craig in the vicinity of the ‘short cut’. He was not far from his parents’ home.

Initial investigations, police said, revealed that Moore was on his way home when he was confronted by the suspects, one of whom was armed with a handgun. An argument reportedly erupted between the victim and the suspects and it escalated into a scuffle, during which the armed suspect discharged several rounds at the victim who fell after which they fled the scene.
