Crime sleuths are putting the pieces together to solve a murder/suicide case that has rocked the country.
In a press release, police revealed that at about 00:16 hrs Saturday morning ranks at the Brickdam Police Station received information that two bodies were lying motionless in a car in the Marriott Hotel parking lot. The men have since been identified as 34-year-old American Airline Flight Attendant, Justin Teixeira and 25-year-old Paishnarine Hansraj.
A few minutes later around 00:30hrs, ranks arrived on the scene and were told by a 28 year-old employee of the Marriot Hotel that on Friday at about 23:30hrs, he received a phone call from June Teixeira, a 60 year-old pensioner of Middle Road, La Penitence, Georgetown informing him that her son Justin Teixeira, was having a seizure. She requested that someone check on him.
A search was made for Justin Teixeira who was a guest at the Marriott. However, when checks were made at his room on the sixth floor it was empty. The employee then went to Teixeira’s black Vezel motorcar (#PAC 2607) that was parked in Marriott’s parking lot where he observed Teixeira sitting in the driver’s seat, and all the windows of the vehicle were half-way down.
The employee said he opened the front passenger door and discovered Paishnarine Hansraj, a 25-year-old from Hague Backdam, West Coast Demerara, sitting in a crunch-like position. Both Teixeira and Hansraj appeared to be motionless.
He immediately called 911 and the Ambulance with EMT arrived along with the Police where they were both pronounced dead at the scene by Dr. Jagoo.
A plastic container containing a whitish hard substance suspected to be narcotics was found on the back seat of the vehicle.
Police confirmed that no marks of violence were seen on the bodies of Teixeira, a flight attendant and Hansraj, a producer.
According to information reaching this newscast, Hansraj was preparing for his engagement next month.
The bodies were escorted to the Memorial Garden Funeral Home awaiting PME.
