GEORGETOWN, Guyana– Police are investigating the deaths of two people, including a 21-year-old man, in what has been described as a murder-suicide early Wednesday.
Police said they were summoned to the East Coast Demerara village of Ann’s Grove during the early hours on Wednesday, where Leon Bobb began his rampage by attacking his son 21-year-old Seon Scott, who died at the scene after being stabbed several times.
The 49-year-old man’s reputed wife, Sharon Scott, is hospitalized after being stabbed repeatedly. The man later ingested a poisonous substance and collapsed. He died in the emergency room in the hospital.
It is unclear what triggered the deadly attack, but persons in the area recalled that the man was abusive and had accused his wife of being unfaithful to him. Media reports said the man might have attacked the wife first and turned his wrath on the son when the youth tried to stop him
