Two men were killed at Three Friends Mines Coomacka in the Upper Demerara, Berbice Region early Saturday morning.
Dead are: Leonard Reec unemployed and Ronald aged 36 years of the same area.
Enquiries disclosed that during the month of April 2021 Ronald Wong was released from prison after he was convicted for attempted murder.
However, after being released he went to live with his uncle Leonard Reece who would usually cook for him on a daily basis.
Maurice Reece unemployed of Three Friends Coomacka Mines who lives in industrial Area Mackenzie Linden received a phone call about 01:30 hours from his niece Marlyn Lyckerish via cellphone who told him that his nephew Ronald chopped his brother Leonard.
Maurice then called his brother in law Walter Reece via cellphone who related the same story to him. He subsequently went to the Mackenzie Police Station and made a report.
The chairman of Three Friends Coomacka Mines who lives about two houses away from Leonard, mentioned that on 2021/05/29 about 01:15 hours while she was asleep at home she was awoken by sounds from Leonard’s house. She immediately went out on her verandah where she saw a man jumped through the eastern window from Leonard’s house and shouted twice in a loud tone of voice “murder”.
She immediately raised an alarm and other neighbours came out and went over to Leonard’s house where the gruesome discovery was made.
Leonard’s body was seen with several wounds covered in blood in the said building in a pair of black boxer pants, while Ronald Wong’s body was also found in a paddle boat in the river with several wounds lying face down.
The scene is still being processed, persons are currently being interviewed and statements are being taken, police said.
