Police have captured Deonarine Sawh, called “Boyzie,” relating to the murder of Nazaleen Mohammed of Belfield Squatting Area, East Coast Demerara (ECD), which occurred on Monday. 

HGP Nightly News understands that the suspect was arrested on Wednesday in an abandoned house at Mahaica during a pre-dawn operation by the Police.

Mohammed, a housewife, had lived with her daughter and reputed husband, who is at sea and is believed to have been murdered between 07:00h and 15:00h on the day in question. 

Reports are that the 47-year-old woman left her Belfield Squatting Area home to visit her brother at Hope Lowlands.

He further stated that he heard his mother shouting for her phone in the background before the call ended. 

Notwithstanding, at about 15:00h, the neighbour who saw her leave her home, went in search of her and found her motionless body lying in a canal with wounds to her head, ear, neck, and abdomen, with her intestines protruding.

The Police were summoned, and the body was escorted to a funeral home, awaiting a Post Mortem Examination (PME). 

Several persons were questioned in the area, and “certain information” was received, Police had said.
