Guyana: Double murder at Coomacka Mines

A double murder has occurred at Three Friends, Coomacka Mines in Region 10, the Guyana Police Force has revealed in a press release.

The incident is reported to have occurred in the early-morning hours of Saturday, May 29, 2021.

Dead are 58-year-old Leonard Reece and his nephew, 36-year-old Ronald Wong.

Police said Wong went to live with Reece — his uncle — after he was released from prison last month.

He was lying facedown with several wounds.
