He has been identified as Samuel Bristol of Nabaclis, East Coast Demerara. Reports indicate that he set himself alight near the Bourda Post Office, Georgetown at approximately 5:30 hours.
Jason John and Carlyle Sinclair were brutally stabbed to death early this morning [Sunday, July 20] on Leopold Street and Lombard Street, respectively.
Bristol was allegedly in an intimate relationship with another male commercial sex worker and became angry after that individual broke off the almost five years relationship.
This news site was informed that the man first showed up on North Road in the vicinity of the St Georges Cathedral where the male sex workers would usually ply their trade and attempted to throw gasoline on the workers to set them alight.
However, some fled while others put up a fight and the man ran from the location and joined a MMC Vehicle which took him to Leopold Street where he attacked the a sex worker and a friend.
iNews understands that the two ran to High Street onto Lombard Street where he caught up with them and knifed them death before fleeing the scene.
The intimate partner of the assailant, Mario, told iNews that he decided to break off the relationship with the man who was an abuser and who his family encouraged him to separate from because of that attitude.
He said that he recently began engaging in the act of commercial sex and the man was not in support of it and would constantly show up at the North Road location and threaten the workers to kill them all.
The police responded very quickly after they were informed of the man’s actions but by the time they arrived he had already gone into hiding. Within five minutes of the incident there were close to five hundred persons who gathered at the two locations as they sought to get a glimpse of the sprawled lifeless bodies of the two.
