[www.inewsguyana.com]iNews understands that a divorce settlement between businessman Moses Looknauth and his wife, Nadia Looknauth might have triggered the man to kill his wife and then himself.

On Saturday morning (November 23), the Georgetown Businessman shot himself dead after first killing his wife whom he had been married to for over eight years.

The couple lived above their Auto Sales/Car Wash Business on Garnett Street and Delph Avenue, Georgetown.

The couple, who are both in their 40’s was discovered around 04:30 hrs by relatives of the Businessman, who claimed he telephoned moments before committing to act to say “he would not be around any longer.”

Neighbours, employees and relatives of the couple all stood in shock and disbelief at the scene.  No one could recall ever seeing the two arguing or fighting; they all said he was friendly and generous.

According to the Guard on duty at the time of the incident, the Businessman called him about 03:00hrs and gave him a key and told him to give the key to his son when he arrives. The man said when the younger Looknauth arrived around 04:30 he handed over the keys.

The Guard, who sat in doubt, said the man appeared normal when he handed over the keys to him. The couple’s son found them dead on the bed.
