The Guyana Police Force has found itself looking for a new suspect in the murder of the Montrose granny after investigators were forced to release the suspect who was held initially, because his alibi was confirmed and his finger prints were not a match to those at the crime scene. .
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum confirmed to News Source this morning that the suspect was released but he indicated that a new suspect is being sought based on several new tips that the Police Force has received.
Last week the Guyana Police Force released a photograph of the man who savagely beat 77-year-old Carmen Ganesh to death during a home invasion. Her body was found two Saturdays ago.
The entire murder was caught on the surveillance cameras of the Montrose house, where the elderly woman lived alone.
The Police Force is asking that anyone who recognizes the image in the photograph or anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect, to contact the police on telephone numbers 225-6411, 225-8196, 225-2227, 229-2557, 229-2702, 911 or the nearest police station. All information will be treated with strict confidence, the police said.
Ganesh was found sprawled on the floor of the two-story house. Neighbours had contacted her family to check on her after they did not see her doing chores in the yard on the Saturday morning as she would usually do.
Investigators believe the killer may have been looking for something specific in the house since he was noticed going through several documents as he questioned the woman before beating her to death. The probe continues.
