7 persons now in custody over brutal murders of Berbice teens

Murdered, Joel Henry and Isaiah Henry

The Guyana Police Force has announced that seven persons are now in custody over the brutal murders of 16-year-old Isaiah Henry and 19-year-old Joel Henry.

Three of those persons are a 57-year-old man upon whose estate there were what appeared to be bloodstains, a handyman who worked with the estate owner, and the estate owner’s son.

INews understands that the other suspects are workers of the estate owner.

Meanwhile, in an update on the investigation, Commissioner of Police (ag) Nigel Hoppie said investigators are still on the ground.

Moreover, it was announced that a postmortem examination will be conducted on the bodies of the two young men tomorrow, September 9.

The badly mutilated bodies of the two young men were discovered on Sunday at a coconut farm at Cotton Tree, almost one day after they went missing.

There were chops all over their bodies, including their necks, heads, and face.
