The East Bank Berbice village of Glasgow was thrown into shock this morning when a villager slashed and stabbed his wife and daughter to death then took his own life. The names of the three dead persons have not been released.
The incident reportedly occurred close to 9:30 this morning. Neighbours were alerted by loud screams from the house.
When some of them ventured into the yard, they found the bloodied bodies of the two women and the man was also found hanging. The couple’s young baby was the only one left unhurt.
The wife died on the spot but the daughter passed away while receiving treatment at a hospital in the area. Both women had multiple chop and stab wounds to their bodies.
It is unclear what may have triggered the double murder and suicide. Up to news time, Police investigators were still at the scene, questioning neighbours and seeking answers.
