IT WAS chaos in the community of Crane, West Coast Demerara on Thursday when 70-year-old Eustane Williams also known as “Patrick” was hacked to death by his 16-year-old stepson.The young man, who was described as a delinquent, was caught by residents while trying to escape. He was beaten before being handed over to the police and remains in custody.
According to residents, around 10:30hrs screams were heard emanating from the man’s kitchen.
“I hear the man screaming and then suddenly the place get silent and I saw his son run out of the house and jump the back fence,” said one of the neighbours.
The Guyana Chronicle understands that carpenters who were working on a structure nearby and residents, chased the boy after discovering the man lying in a pool of blood in the house. Further reports indicate that the boy was later found by the villagers and police in an old toilet (latrine) within the village.
However, persons bemoaned the fact that the 16-year-old was allegedly a “village delinquent,” who would often break into their homes, steal their belongings and a conduct a host of other illicit activities.
This newspaper understands that the teenager and the man had a disagreement about a month ago, and Williams had thrown him out of the house because of his delinquent behaviour.
The teen, nevertheless, returned to the house on several occasions and was involved in several heated arguments with Williams, until it ended fatally yesterday.
Williams’s family is currently abroad, while the 16-year-old is in police custody assisting with the investigation.
