The Berbice region has been rocked by another murder. This time, Police investigators have found themselves in #55 village Corentyne probing the suspected murder of a missing young man.
On Friday afternoon, investigators were called to the burial ground in the same village after the burnt mutilated remains of someone was found in a shallow grave.
Investigators believe the remains are those of 21-year-old, Mahendra Ghanie. The young man was last seen alive on Monday night when he left his family’s home to visit his employer and enquire about his salary.
He was not seen or heard from since.
Investigators believe that the young man may have been murdered by his employer with the aid of relatives and his body was chopped into pieces before they burnt those pieces and buried them in a shallow grave.
The employer along with a relative and two other persons have since been arrested. There are reports that the employer and his son have since confessed to the murder. They will remain in custody as the investigation continues.
