Home News 3 confess to robbing, murdering vendor
As Police continue their investigation into the murder of 51-year-old Dhanpaul Dookie, called “Pauline”, a vendor of Uitspa Village, Demerara River, 3 men have confessed to the heinous crime.
According to reports, the men admitted to robbing and stabbing the vendor to death between Monday and Thursday last.
Guyana Times understands that two of the suspects reside on the East Coast of Demerara and were employed by the now dead man. The third is reportedly a villager whom the two masterminds contacted days before the murder.
The farmer was stabbed twice to his abdomen, once to his lower back, once to his hip, once to his forehead, and once above his right eye. After committing the act, the suspects made their way into the man’s home, from whence they raided money and jewellery among other items before escaping.
However, after three days, the man’s body was found by persons who had gone to check on the cause of his absence. The police were immediately contacted and an investigation was launched.
A post mortem conducted on the remains of the man proved that he died from multiple stab wounds.
The three suspects were each previously charged: one for murder, but that case was dismissed; another for attempted murder, and that case is pending in the high court; and the third was charged with several other criminal offences.
The three suspects are expected to be arraigned on a murder charge when they make their court appearance in the new week.
