Essequibo Porter murdered during drinking spree
The lifeless body of a 30-year-old porter was discovered on Monday morning in a pool of blood at Vergenoegen, Essequibo.
Dead is Nair Khan.
An investigation has revealed that at about 10.p.m Sunday night the deceased and a male who is currently on the run, were imbibing at the suspect’s home when an argument erupted over an accusation that the victim was having a relationship with the suspect’s wife.
The argument reportedly escalated and the suspect allegedly stabbed the porter who fled the scene, leaving a trail of blood; the body was discovered about 110 yards from where the incident occurred.
Investigators have since obtained a statement from the suspect’s wife who was present when the incident occurred.
A gaping wound was seen on the victim’s left hand.
The body is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination as investigations continue.
