Security officer found murdered in guard hut

first_imgA security officer attached to the Cummings Electrical Company Limited was found dead in a guard hut on the business premises on Sunday.Dead: Keegan BostonThe now dead man, identified as 60-year-old Keegan Boston of Lot 520 East Ruimveldt Housing Scheme, Georgetown, was discovered with a wound to the back of his head.Reports are that the man was last seen alive about 23:00h on Saturday while executing his duties at the company’s Garnett Street, Campbellville location.However, Boston was found dead in the hut about 06:15h on Sunday by an electrician attached to the company in the presence of another security guard who was supposed to relieve Boston of his duties.According to the security guard, he realised something was amiss when he kept calling out to Boston for him to open the gate, but he did not get a response.After several minutes, the electrician decided to scale the fence and made the gruesome discovery.An alarm was raised and the Police were summoned to the scene. Boston’s body was taken to the Lyken Funeral Home, where it was presently awaiting a post-mortem.Crime Chief, Deputy Police Commissioner Lyndon Alves told Guyana Times on Monday that no one has been arrested for the alleged murder.He stated that the detectives who are tasked with investigating the man’s death were yet to report whether or not they have been able to retrieve Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage from the security cameras at Cummings Electrical Company.However, the Crime Chief noted that while there were reports which suggested that the security cameras were not functioning at the time of Boston’s demise, the Police still have to pursue every angle possible in determining if the man was murdered and the motive.Some staff working at the company had told the media that those security cameras had not been functioning for a while and, therefore, there would be no footage that could be retrieved that would help the Police in their investigations.Investigations into the matter continue.last_img read more

Local farmers to start canola harvest this week

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the amounts of rain experienced for most of the summer in Fort St. John and surrounding areas, it looks like farmers are now getting a break in the weather.Kelly Kassian, manager of Viterra in Fort St. John, the crops and fields were affected by the steady rain but are now ready for harvest, starting on canola by the end of this week.“They didn’t mature as fast as we wanted them to because of all the rain and everything but they’re coming along now. We should have some canola start getting swathed down by the end of this week.”- Advertisement -As for the peas, Kassian says they will be a bit delayed as they need more sun and time to dry up and mature before they are ready to harvest.According to Kassian, some of the fields were hit hard by the unfavourable weather as some had wet spots and even crops knocked down.Environment Canada is calling for mostly warmer temperatures and sun this week, with a chance of showers on the weekend.Advertisementlast_img read more
