Police issues wanted bulletin for Joel Henry’s brother

The Guyana Police Force on Wednesday issued a wanted Bulletin for Mark Anthony Henry (the brother of murder West Coast Demerara Teen Joel Henry) for the murder of 67-year-old Surijdeo Deochand called ‘Sarjie’.

Surijdeo Deochand was found unconscious in his home Tuesday afternoon by relatives with what appear to be chops wounds to the head, face, and hands, he was pronounced dead at the Fort Wellington Hospital.

The police in its wanted bulletin said that they need Henry for questioning in relation to the murder committed on Surijdeo Deochand.

The force is also asking anyone who has information on the whereabouts of the young man to contact the nearest police station and also assured that all information will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Residents of Region Five along with relatives of the Henry boys suggested that Mark Anthony Henry is in the interior working and has been there for sometime now.

‘Sarjee’ was among the first set of persons who were initially arrested for the Henry Boys murder after relatives of the cousin and other villagers accused him of engaging in witchcraft and suggested that he might have sacrificed the cousins.

It was revealed too that the deceased had a land dispute with a neighbour. While the police are seeking to gather as much information as possible, the villagers and residents seem to be somewhat reluctant to cooperate given the protests that were triggered following the deaths of the Henry boys and later Haresh Singh.
