[] – The Guyana Police Force has managed a breakthrough in the murder investigations of political activist, Courtney Crum-Ewing, who was gunned down on March 10, 2015 at Third Avenue, Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara.

Crime Chief, Wendell Blanhum has revealed that ranks from the Force’s Major Crime Investigation Unit have questioned a suspect in connection with the murder, who remains in police custody.

The identity of the suspect remains unknown to the public. Eight persons were previously arrested and questioned in relation to the murder, but were subsequently released.

Crum-Ewing was assassinated while urging residents of Diamond to vote for the Opposition Coalition at the just concluded May 11, 2015 general and regional elections.

He was shot five times, including three times to the head at point blank range. The former GDF Solider had staged a protest for several weeks outside the office of then Attorney General, Anil Nandlall between November and December 2014 calling for his resignation following allegations of corruption and threats to journalists.




  1. And what of the daily murders and robberies being committed against our citizens?? What is your new leadership doing about that???

  2. It took the police so long to get a suspect the Gov just had to have a fall guy to take the rap for them.

  3. INews,
    I have tried to credit your news website with furnishing the name of Kwame McCoy in a news item last December as the person Crum-Ewing identified to you and the police as threatening to kill him for his one-man street protests.
    No other local media outlet wanted to touch this identification, which is why I now ask why you did not see fit to give this news item some context by drawing from the allegation made by Crum-Ewing and McCoy’s response as reported by iNews last December.
    News houses do not just report news; they help readers connect the dots by showing trends/patterns and refreshing readers’ memories by recapping highlights of past related news stories.
    Be brave and readers will gravitate to you.

  4. Looks like the Guyana police have re-located the art/science of criminal investigation. That is a good thing. Seems like the impact of new leadership in public security is being felt.
