With loud chants of No Justice, No Peace Hundreds of Guyanese, voiced their frustration and anger, over the brutal murders of the Henry cousins through a one-hour peaceful demonstration at the Square of the Revolution on Tuesday
Guyana police last night said they have arrested five persons in connection with the shocking murders of two teenage boys in West Coast Berbice.
Isaiah and Joel Henry, ages 16 and 19, respectively, were found murdered on Sunday at a coconut farm at Cotton Tree, West Coast Berbice, a day after they went missing. Their bodies were mutilated with chops on their necks, heads and face. The murders have triggered protests in Hope Town that led to Guyana police firing tear gas and rubber pellets in an effort to break up the protestors.
Police say among those arrested to date is a 57-year-old man upon whose estate the bodies were found as well as a handyman who worked with the estate owner, and his son. The gruesome murders filled many with shock on social media Monday.
