De Kinderen man brutally chopped, stabbed to death during brawl
A 34-year-old man, who Police have since identified as Lindsford Kenwayne Duguid, was brutally stabbed and chopped to death in the wee hours of Sunday at De Kinderen Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara (WCD).
The cops said the murder was allegedly committed by three known suspects, who they were up to late Sunday evening hunting.
Based on reports received, at about 22:00h on Saturday, Duguid allegedly visited the De Kinderen location and asked for a 22-year-old female Venezuelan national. Police said the man was informed by the owner of the property that the woman was not at home.
Hours later, however, the landlord told investigators that he heard a loud scream at about 03:30h on Sunday morning and upon checking, he saw Duguid pulling the 22-year-old female by her hair, while one of the suspects (another female Venezuelan national) held on to Duguid’s waist from the back.
The owner then rushed to the area and saw Duguid and two of the suspects fighting in a drain.
He further stated that he saw one of the suspects with a knife in her hand stabbing at the now dead man’s leg, while a male Venezuelan national was seen holding the deceased around his neck.
Sometime later, the third suspect appeared with a cutlass in his hand and began to chop Duguid about his body. One of the suspects was heard asking for a rope that was used to tie Duguid’s legs. The Police were contacted and arrived at the scene by which time the suspects had already fled.
Duguid was found lying in a drain with chops to his left and right fingers and hand while his right leg and chest had stab wounds. In addition, the deceased had multiple chops to his head and a rope was tied around his legs and neck.
One brown-handled knife suspected to be one of the murder weapons, was found on the grass parapet about four feet from the body. Upon searching the drain, a Samsung cell phone and a pair of female running boots were recovered by Police.
A search of the De Kinderen yard revealed bloodstains leading from a yard pipe to the stairs. Detectives also searched the house during which one pair of camouflage pants and one white jersey soaked with mud were collected. Also, the remaining rope that formed a clothing line was collected as evidence.
Checks were also made for one of the suspects at his De Kinderen residence but he was not located.
While searching the location, Police said they located a cutlass near a plastic barrel that contained water along with a pair of long pants and one shirt with mud. Investigations are ongoing.
