While he still does not want to release the name of the man who is in custody for the murder of political activist Courtney Crum-Ewing, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum on Sunday morning disclosed that there is hard evidence linking the suspect to the execution style killing. He said he is confident that the evidence will lead to a criminal prosecution.

“We have ┬ásuspect and we have hard evidence which can potentially lead to a prosecution. This is not somebody we just went on the road and picked up off the street. He has been fingered previously in at least one execution and also he is a known character to the police. So currently we are continuing our probe in the Courtney Crum-Ewing investigations”, the Crime Chief noted.

He explained to News Source that the suspect remains in custody and is being further questioned.

Yesterday, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud told the media that based on the evidence in the case so far, the murder points to some political connections and he believes it was politically motivated.

The 40-year-old Courtney Crum-Ewing was shot dead in March of this year as he walked through the Diamond community with a loud hailer, encouraging residents to vote the PPP Civic out of office.

Before that he had protested for weeks against the Attorney General at the time, Anil Nandlall, over a recorded telephone conversation between Nandlall and a news reporter.

Crum-Ewing had complained to the Police that persons were making threats against his life. His family members said the threats were never taken seriously by the police.

Crum-Ewing was shot five times, three of those shots were close range shots to his head.
