In Canje Berbice, investigators are probing the brutal stabbing death murder of a 14-year-old girl whose body was found in a trench in the community on Saturday.
The teenager went missing on Friday evening and relatives and family friends began search efforts. Those efforts came to a sad end when they discovered her body with marks of violence and a number of stab wounds.
Family members said the death and the manner in which the teenager was killed has left them baffled. They said they are unaware of anyone the teenager had any problem with and are still trying to figure out who would commit such a horrendous act.
No one has been arrested in connection with the murder. Investigators intend to speak to a number of the young girl’s friends and some relatives. The murder rate in Guyana continues to climb and many of the murder cases remain unsolved.
