Govt’ employee arrested for Crum – Ewing’s murder

Courtney Crum – Ewing during one of his many protests.

Crum Ewing[] – The police yesterday afternoon swooped down on a location in the city and arrested a public servant in connection with the murder of Courtney Crum – Ewing.

The public servant would now be the second person who is in the custody of the police.

iNews has been reliably informed that the man had approached the first suspect shortly before Crum – Ewing was gunned down and offered him several million dollars to execute another opposition activist but that offer was turned down.

Police sources are maintaining that the first suspect who is in police custody is in fact the man who pulled the trigger on Crum – Ewing, who was gunned down on March 10, 2015 at Third Avenue, Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara while using a bull horn to encourage residents to vote for the APNU+AFC.

After four months, investigators finally made an arrest on Friday last in the man’s murder but Police Commissioner, Seelall Persaud would not reveal the identity of the suspect in custody or where he was arrested so as not to hamper the investigations.

Self confessed ‘death squad’ member, Sean Hinds has sought to clear his name in the murder during an exclusive interview with Travis Chase of HGPTV Nightly News on Tuesday, July 21 and has since pointed fingers at two activists of the now Opposition People’ Progressive Party, whom he said should be questioned by the police.
