One day after she was last seen alive by relatives, the lifeless body of 29-year-old Canje, Berbice resident, Donalesa Park was found dumped at the side of the roadway in Corentyne.
According to a Police report, the body was found wrapped in plastic. Family members have been left confused and shocked by the murder.
The dead woman’s sister told investigators that she last saw Donalesa on Wednesday morning when she left their home to do a hair braiding job in East Canje, Berbice.
The sister said Donalesa never returned home and when she made contact with the person who had hired her to do the hair braiding, the person reported that she was a no-show for the job on Wednesday but had contacted her to tell her that she was heading to Corentyne.
At around 7 o’clock this morning, the Police were alerted to the discovery of the woman’s body at the side of the roadway along the Courtland Village Public Road in Berbice.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum has confirmed that a rank of the Guyana Defence Force who was known to the woman is a person of interest in the case and the suspicion has been forwarded to the GDF.
The soldier has since been handed over to the Major Crimes Unit of the Police Force, where he is being questioned about the murder.
A full probe is being conducted and investigators are also asking anyone with any additional information to contact the nearest Police station or call 911.
