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.

Divisional Commander Leslie James and Divisional Detective Officer Assistant Superintendent J. Grant visited the crime scene.

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.
