THE forensic evidence from the crime scenes of teenage cousins Isaiah and Joel Henry, along with 17-year-old Haresh Singh, has returned to Guyana after it was analysed in a St. Lucian laboratory, police have confirmed.

Dead: Haresh Singh

Police are hoping that the DNA samples will assist in identifying the killers of the teenagers. But there has been no word yet on whether the samples have yielded any conclusive evidence.
Isaiah, 16, and Joel, 18, were last seen alive on September 5, after they left home for the Cotton Tree backlands, reportedly to pick coconuts.
Their badly mutilated bodies were later found about 600 feet from each other in clumps of bushes near a coconut farm on the West Coast of Berbice. Police had made several arrests but the suspects were all released.

The killings had caused several days of protest in the area. Days after this, another teenager, Haresh Singh, 17, was found dead in a backdam at Number Two Village, West Coast Berbice. His motorcycle was also torched.

The team from the CARICOM Regional Security System (RSS), which recently visited Guyana, has expressed satisfaction with the work done by the Guyana Police Force in relation to the investigation into the brutal murders.

The team visited Guyana on September 28 and spent one week assisting local detectives with the case. Their final report has since been submitted to the Guyana Police Force.
