DEAD: Monica Beekharry

Monica Singh Beekharry also known as “Sattie” was on Monday afternoon killed in her Atlantic Gardens, East Coast Demerara home.

Her motionless body was found in her home by police officers who responded to reports of a woman crying for help.

When ranks arrived on scene, the suspect – who is said to be a friend of the victim – was still in the house.

It is suspected that the man might have killed the woman during an argument over money.

An autopsy has since confirmed that the woman died as a result of brain haemorrhage due to multiple trauma to head, compounded by multiple fracture to right side rib.
