Henry Cousins Murdered Elsewhere, DNA Test Results Due In Three Weeks-Police

(Demerara Waves) The Guyana Police Force Monday evening said the youthful Henry cousins were killed elsewhere and their bodies taken to where a search Party found them.

“Preliminary findings showed that the bodies of the Henry boys were discovered at a secondary crime scene, meaning that the heinous murders were not committed where the bodies were found,” police said in an update, the first in five days.

Police said they were searching for two other suspects.

Investigators said the bodies of Isaiah and Joel Henry were moved after they were killed and placed at the locations where they were found discovered last week Sunday by a search party. Their mutilated bodies were found on a coconut plantation at Cotton Tree Village, West Coast Berbice one day after they left their Number Three Village, West Coast Berbice.

Sleuths’ access to the crime scene and other areas were reportedly hampered in their work by violent protests on the Upper East Coast Demerara Public Road and the West Coast Berbice Public Road.

Police said they were continuing their search for the location where the boys were killed after they left home to pick coconuts to sell.
