Police in Berbice are probing the murder of a 45-year-old female farmer who was shot dead in her home last evening during a robbery.
The woman has been identified as Pamela Kendall.
According to reports, during a power outage in the community last night, the armed bandits stormed the woman’s house demanding money.
She was shot dead during the invasion. Just recently an East Coast grandmother was beaten to death when a man invaded her home. That murder was caught on camera but the suspect is still to be positively identified and arrested.
The murder rate in the country continues to rise as the police also report an increase in serious crimes. Just recently, a section of the swat unit of the police force was dispatched to Berbice to assist in the crime fight.
