Two days after 19-year-old Rollan Abrams, of Melanie, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was arraigned for the murder of David Gentle, the Police have issued a wanted bulletin for another teenager –Lennox Roberts for questioning in connection with the crime.
The first teen, Abrams, was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he appeared at the Cove and John Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
The Police stated that on September 2, 2019, Abrams murdered 58-year-old Gentle.
He was remanded to prison by presiding Magistrate Fabayo Azore and was scheduled to make his next court appearance on October 22, 2019.
It was reported that Gentle, of Lot 42 Golden Grove, ECD, was a Clerk attached to the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) at the time of his demise.
Police investigations revealed that on the day in question, Gentle, a father of four, was last seen at a karaoke in Nabaclis North, ECD.
Upon the discovery of his body, relatives dismissed robbery as a motive, since it was found with his jewellery and his cellular phone.
Gentle’s younger sister, Wanda Benjamin, had stated that on the day in question, she was awakened by someone who arrived at her home to request the services of her husband – a photographer. The woman said she and her family went to the scene, but initially did not recognise Gentle as his face was covered with blood.
After a thorough investigation, Abrams was arrested and charged.
