Thirty-seven year old Reagan Rodrigues aka “Grey Boy” was this afternoon (August 7, 2015) charged for the murder of political activist Courtney Crum-Ewing.
He appeared in court and was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge. Dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, the man stood emotionless as the charge was read to him that on the 10th March, 2015 in the Diamond community, he shot and killed the political activist.
Rodrigues shouted out that the real persons responsible for the Crum-Ewing murder are still walking free. He accused a man by the name of “Caesar” and “Rajput” as the persons behind the execution.
Rajput Narine is the former bodyguard for the former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall. He was held for questioning in connection with the execution but was released on station bail. He still has to report to the police frequently.
Courtney Crum-Ewing was shot five times as he used a loud hailer to encourage people in the Diamond community to vote against the PPP Civic at the recent elections.
Three of the shots were close range shots to his head while the other two shots were to his body.
Rodrigues was held for the murder after the police arrested him in connection with another investigation and the gun found on him, matched the gun that was used to kill Crum-Ewing.
The accused has long been fingered in a number of execution type murders. He will return to court later this month.
