GPF following new leads in Henry cousins, Singh investigation

Commissioner of Police (Ag.) Nigel Hoppie says the Guyana Police Force is following new leads in the investigations of the brutal murders of Isaiah and Joel Henry and Haresh Singh in West Coast Berbice (WCB).

“There are efforts ongoing to ensure that no stone is left unturned as we pursue this matter. Currently the Police are pursuing new leads,” the Commissioner said. Commissioner Hoppie made this disclosure on the side-lines of the commissioning of the Brickdam lock-ups on Wednesday.

The Commissioner said a detailed report is expected shortly from the five-member Regional Security System (RSS) team which provided assistance to local investigators. However, the Argentine team which has offered to lend support should be arriving soon.  

“No time has yet been finalised but we are still engaging the persons with a view of ensuring the experts arrive here to bring this matter to finality,” the Commissioner stated.

The Argentine Team of Forensic Anthropology will include a forensic pathologist, a forensic anthropologist, and a forensic radiologist.

Additionally, Commissioner Hoppie said the official results of the DNA samples which were sent to St. Lucia for testing should be known soon.

Back in September, the Henry cousins were found brutally murdered in Cotton Tree Village, West Coast Berbice. Singh was killed a few days later and his body found in the Number Two Village backdam.
