A post mortem examination performed on 23-year-old Rawle Peters, formerly of 21 Haslington North, has revealed that he died from intestinal rupturing. Peters was gutted with a Brazilian chopper.
The victim, called ‘Dumb Boy’, was stabbed to death at Puruni Landing, Mazaruni, last Monday. He succumbed on the Puruni trail as efforts were being made by public spirited persons to transport him to the Bartica Hospital.
Relatives of the dead man said that he received lacerations to his right arm and vast wounds to his left side and lower abdomen.
The victim’s grandmother, Glayds Peters, told Kaieteur News that one of his former employers contacted her and told her that her grandson was brutally attacked by someone, with whom he had a previous altercation.
She said that the woman received another phone call, later that day to tell her the gruesome news that he had died. The elderly woman said that Peters was involved in a fight a couple of months ago. She is contending that it is the same person who murdered her grandson.
Peters’s mother, Pamela Lewis, said that it was just a month ago that her son almost drowned and now she has lost him. She is appealing to the Guyana Police Force to spare no pains to ensure that justice is done.
“De boy from Plaisance who did dis, I want him to pay fuh dis..,” said a tear-eyed Lewis.
Lewis said that she was informed by her son’s present employer that the suspect was seen sitting on the landing at Puruni, but she was later informed by the police at Bartica, that no one had been held.
Kaieteur News understands that ranks at the Bartica Police Station conducted a search for the alleged killer, but failed to find him.
This publication was told that witnesses informed the police that Peters and a male had an argument over $300,000 that Peters claimed he had lost.
Subsequently they had an altercation during which Peters dealt the alleged killer several blows to his body with a piece of wood. The man reportedly defended himself, using a chopper.
Police are still investigating the matter.
