The body of an 18-year-old resident of Kaneville, East Bank Demerara (EBD) was fished out of a trench in Craig—the neighbouring village—hours after he left his home to make a police report against a gang in the community.
Dead is Wayne Anthony George Jr of Kaneville. His body, with several marks of violence was found floating in the trench this morning.
Guyana Standard has been informed that George Jr was being targeted by a gang in the village for months. The gang members would allegedly pelt and run him when they spotted him on the road.
The deceased’s mother, Emmette George said that she was at home this morning when someone went to her home to inform her that the young man had been killed and his body dumped in a trench.
The woman said that she last saw her son last night when he complained to her that members from the gang had assaulted him again and were laughing at him as he tried to escape them.
The woman said that she advised him to make a police report. He left home late yesterday to go visit the Grove Police Station to make the report but never returned home.
No one has been arrested.
