The body of a Venezuelan woman bearing multiple chop wounds was on Tuesday found in a shallow grave at ‘Cores’ back dam, Eteringbang, Region Seven.
Police said Deissy Antury Perdomo was a clothes vendor at Eteringbang Landing, Cuyuni River, and also did Pork Knocking in the said ‘Cores back dam’ along with two male Venezuelan nationals – and her reputed husband, Vladimir Marquez.
Reports are that Marquez left for Venezuela on April 22, 2022, and returned on Tuesday where he was unable to contact his wife. He became alarmed and a search party began to search the area.
