A 21-year-old Venezuelan national has been arrested in Region 7 over the murder of another Venezuelan.
The name of the suspect has not been released, but he was arrested yesterday in connection with the New Year’s Day murder of 51-year-old Venezuelan, Animal Sonja. The incident reportedly took place at the Arau Mountaintop in the Cuyuni River.
The two men reportedly worked at a mining camp in the area and got into an argument over a quantity of raw gold.
It was during that argument that the 21-year-old lashed the 51-year-old man across his head with a piece of wood.
The man fell to the ground and never regained consciousness. He died at the scene. The arrested suspect is expected to face the courts this week.
