More Suspects Arrested In Guyanese Double Murder

(LOOP NEWS CARIBBEAN) – Two more suspects have been arrested in connection with the gruesome murders of cousins Isaiah and Joel Henry in West Coast Berbice, Guyana over the weekend.

On Sunday — a 57 year old man, who owns a coconut estate in Cotton Tree where the bodies were found — was detained.

At a media conference on Monday, Commissioner of Police Nigel Hoppie revealed that the new suspects are relatives of the estate owner and a handyman.

The bodies of Isaiah, 16, and Joel, 18, were found on Sunday hours after they were reported missing.

The teens had gone to the area on Saturday to pick coconuts at the backdam.

Residents of Number Three, Four and Five Villages are staging fiery protests as they call for justice.

Hoppie has called for calm as he assured “no stone will be left unturned” to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Despite arresting suspects, the police do not have a murder weapon.

But Hoppie said the suspects are assisting with their investigation.
