Suspect in Bush Lot farmers’ murder surrenders to police

Romeo Jeenarine

One of the main suspects in the recent murders of Bush Lot farmers Harricharran and Premcharran Samaroo yesterday surrendered to the police in Berbice.

He has since been placed into custody for questioning as the investigation continues.

Romeo Jeenarine, 18, of Lot 439 Bush Lot Village, Corentyne, turned himself over at the Whim Police Station minutes after 9 am yesterday in the presence of his attorney, Charlyn Artiga.

Artiga yesterday told Stabroek News that the matter was still under investigation, hence she was not aware as to what evidence the police had against her client at that time. “A wanted bulletin was issued but there was a confusion with the name,” she said, while noting that her client is cooperating with the police in relation to their investigation. ….
