According to Police Headquarters, no one has been arrested so far.
On Monday, Police released some more information about what transpired in the wee hours of the morning that lead to Carlos Waithe, aged 24-years being in cold storage.
It is said that clothes vendor of lot 2 Norton Street Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, and several friends were consuming alcohol earlier in the night in Charlestown. Waithe informed his friends that he was heading to a popular bar and left.
According to police investigators, the now deceased, around 04:00 hours, the now dead man showed up at a popular bar on Breda Street in the company of another male.
