2 allegedly commit suicide in Berbice


The bodies of a 20-year-old man and a 14-year-old girl were this morning found hanging from the rafter of a bedroom in a house at Launsdale, East Bank Berbice.

Deeraj Persaud and Sherry Ann Alli were discovered at about 07:00h by relatives with ropes around their necks.

While information remains sketchy, Inews understands that the couple might have been in a relationship which was not approved by either of their parents.

The police have launched an investigation and have not ruled out foul play.




  1. My condolences go out to both families and I pray that the grace of God rest continually with them. I just hope that the nation pull together to help support and guide these young people in the right direction.

  2. This is very sad. A lot of us need to STOP LIVING A SELFISH LIFE and reach out to our youths. They need guidance. Let’s all join the fight to live as ONE PPL ONE NATION…R.I.P kids
