Belle West man murdered, body dumped in septic tank
A 33-year-old man was on Saturday discovered with chop wounds to his head in a septic tank at Second Street Belle West, West Bank Demerara (WBD), just days after he had celebrated his birthday.
Dead is Colin Anthony King, also known as “Harry” or “Pablo”. Based on information received, King was last seen alive on Tuesday evening during his 33rd birthday celebration at his Second Street Belle West, WBD home.
Guyana Times understands that only a week ago, King moved in with one of his friends, where the party was held.
According to other friends, after the party, they all left and had not seen King since that evening. As such, they decided to search for him at the house during which they discovered his lifeless body in the septic tank.
Speaking with this publication, the brother of the dead man, Jose King, related that he received a call from his sister saying that their brother had died.
“I got a call from my little sister and she told me that Harry passed away… so is come I come and I see it is true… he was living with a guy and he had purchased a motorbike recently and he don’t lend the bike, so people wanted to know how this boy that he living with was riding the bike and that is what draw the attention to this whole thing…” he said
Jose King said on Wednesday, his brother’s housemate was seen at the house making several checks around the premises.
“I don’t know the person, but what people are saying, it is the same person. They said the person was up and down. Up to last night [Friday night] the person went and check and was seen riding the bike… he has one child and it is a son,” the man said.
The grieving brother related that he along with his family have not seen his brother for the past two years. He said the last time they saw him was at their mother’s funeral in 2019. He said it is quite unfortunate that his brother had to die in that manner, and called for justice to be served.
Meanwhile, neighbours also said they heard no noises or screams coming from the house, so they are unaware as to what may have transpired.
The only thing that was amiss, was a strong stench that was coming from the wooden structure. Police have since launched an investigation. (G9)
