[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 25 – year – old year old mother of three was earlier this morning (Tuesday, June 10) found dead in her Friendship, East Bank Demerara house.

Shelly Persaud was found leaning over a bucket at the bottom of her step by her reputed husband. He is now in police custody.

The woman’s father, Orin Morris suspects foul play and said his daughter could not have drown because her head was in a bucket that barely had water and her underwear was pulled down.

This made him questioned if his youngest daughter was raped. Morris said his daughter looked as if her neck was broken. The father said his daughter’s husband came to his home this morning after 2:30 hours, baring the bad news of his daughter’s demise.

Blood stains were also found around the woman’s home. The man said after his wife died he never entered another relationship and remained focused on raising his children.

Even though the family suspects foul play, he said the woman and her husband seemed happy and never publicly argued.

iNews will provide more information as it becomes available.



  1. That’s the problem with this country is that things like this happen so often that no one cares and it’s senseless comments like urs that piss the family off… This needs to stop and the only way to do that is as a community if the police aren’t doing anything to stop crimes like these the people as a whole should be stepping up and showing the government that things need to change it’s pretty sad u can’t even go outside ur house without the fear… Ask ur selves if this is a place or envoriment u all want ur children to grow up in if they have the chance of growing up !!!

  2. What is really new in this country? Every day is murder, suicide, rape and police killing or brutality….
