THE suspect who bludgeoned miner, Van burn Hanover to death at a disco in Madhia on Saturday night is still at large up to press time, Police said.
The police in Madhia said that efforts are being made to locate the suspect, who fled the scene after he clubbed Hanover with a piece of wood minutes after he left the gambling table where a quarrel had erupted over the miner’s win.

Police said that they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of miner, Van burn Handover, 33, of Jonestown, Mahaica, who was found lying unconscious in front of a disco at Madhia at about 23:00 h on Saturday June 26, 2010, with a piece of wood next to him.
He was taken to the Madhia Hospital, where he died while receiving medical treatment at about 04:00 h on Sunday morning.
