A 42-year-old rice farmer has confessed to murdering 14-year-old Christopher Basdeo before burying him in a seven feet grave at Lust-En-Rust, La Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara (WBD).

Basdeo disappeared last Wednesday after he left his La Parfaite Harmonie home to meet with a friend.

Police have identified the suspect as Jairam Seiupersaud (spelling given by police) of Lot 548 La Parfaite Harmonie.

The suspect reportedly told the police that he and the teenager were drinking banko wine around 20:15 hrs on Wednesday afternoon when they got into an argument over money.

Guyana Standard has been informed that the duo got into a fight and the rice farmer reportedly armed himself with a piece of wood and lashed the teen to his head, causing him to collapse.

The suspect then left the teen there and went home. He returned later, dug a hole and buried the remains.

The suspect was taken into custody and the body is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral home awaiting a post mortem examination.
