Preliminary findings into the Henry boys’ murder probe show that the bodies of the two teens were discovered at a secondary crime scene.

This means that the heinous murders were not committed where the bodies were found. Person(s) moved the bodies after the murder and placed them at the locations where they were subsequently discovered, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) said this evening.

Further, after the crime scene ranks classified the location where the bodies were discovered as a secondary crime scene, forensic evidence was discovered at the said area.

This forensic evidence was identified, collected preserved and submitted to the Guyana Forensic Laboratory for DNA analysis to be conducted. DNA samples were also collected from the suspects who were in custody and sent for a comparative analysis to be conducted against the forensic evidence collected from the secondary crime scene.  Results are expected within three weeks.

At this time, the investigators are actively in search of the primary crime scene which would greatly assist in the probe as the primary crime scene will have an abundance of evidence linking the perpetrators to the crime. The investigators are all actively following up every lead and information received from members of the public who have come forward to assist investigators.

The bodies of 16-year-old Isaiah and his 19-year-old cousin, Joel were discovered in the Cotton Tree Village Backlands a week ago.
