Over two months have passed since 29-year-old Donald Sheriff of Patrick’s Dam, Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam, Berbice, has gone into hiding after he allegedly beat to death a labourer from his village and as such the police have issued a Wanted Bulletin for the murder suspect.

Sheriff is wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of 33-year-old Keron Nicholson which occurred between March 8 and March 17, this year at Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam, Berbice.

In March month, Nicholson succumbed to his injuries at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), days after he was reportedly beaten near his home.

It is alleged that Sheriff and the now dead man had been involved in a row which quickly escalated and resulted in a physical altercation between the two men.

He subsequently died while receiving treatment.
