Police ranks in ‘D’ Division have intensified their hunt for the reputed husband of the late Bibi Zabida Khan also known as “Theresa” after he allegedly beat his wife, drowned her in a canal and then disappeared.
Rudolph Williams, a 43-year cane cutter of Stewartville, West Coast Demerara (WCD) is still on the run after witnesses claimed that the man drowned his wife in a canal at Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo almost three weeks ago.
According to initial reports, persons in the area saw the couple in a heated argument then witnessed Williams hitting the woman.
They then threatened to contact the police and this pushed Williams into jumping into the nearby trench, pulling his wife in with him.
He allegedly drowned the mother of three before he escaped on the other side of the trench which was a ‘bushy’ area.
As a result of the environment being dark since the incident was said to have taken place in the evening, persons could not have seen what was transpiring when the man and his wife went into the trench.
However, after a while of searching the area, they located the woman’s body inside the trench.
To date, Williams has not turned himself in at any police station for questioning in relation to the matter and he has not been seen at his residence since.
