Police Sergeant hacked to death, suspect hangs self

first_imgBy Andrew CarmichaelA murder-suicide at Union, typically referred to as Number 30 Village, on the West Coast of Berbice (WCB), Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) has left residents in a state of shock.Woman Police Sergeant Kenisha Sheriff-Fraser, 39, was found in a pool of blood at her lot 370 Union Village, WCB home.Dead: Murder suspect, Clayton AnthonyThe alleged suspect has been identified as Clayton Anthony, also called “Woody”, 42, a porkknocker who occupies the bottom flat of the said house. His body was found hanging from a tree at the village seashore.Police in a release confirmed they are investigating a murder-suicide. According to the release, the Sergeant’s body was discovered in a bedroom in the upper flat of her two-storied home with multiple chop wounds. A blood-stained cutlass, suspected to be the murder weapon, was recovered at the scene.Deputy Commander Edmond Cooper said the investigators were responding to a report of a murder without the knowledge of who the victim was.The house where the murder took placeHe said when the Police arrived, they discovered several chop wounds on the body of the deceased. “As the Police continued their investigation we tried to locate the perpetrator and at the back of Number 30 Village at the seaside, we saw him hanging from a tree.”Cooper noted that the investigation will continue. He referred to the Sergeant’s death as a tragic loss to the Guyana Police Force. “We will do all in our power to control the family at this point in time and the mother who happens to be a Lance Corporal, stationed at the Weldaad Police Station.”When Sheriff-Fraser’s body was discovered, she was naked and there were chop wounds to the stomach, forehead, neck and arms.Sheriff-Fraser, who is the Treasurer at the Bob Gilliard Church in the village, is said to have been preparing for church when she met her demise.At the home, several of her colleagues were inconsolable as they tried to come to grip with the fact that the Sergeant who worked at the Registry Department at Central Police Station in New Amsterdam was no more.A neighbour, Avril Carmichael, who discovered the body told Guyana Times that Sheriff-Fraser was making strange sounds prior to her going into the house.She said it was her 29-year-old granddaughter who heard what is believed to be someone crying and alerted her. “I did not hear no quarreling. My granddaughter said she hear her screaming out like crying and all of a sudden the crying stopped so she tell me to go over,” Carmichael revealed.At first she thought it was Sheriff-Fraser’s mother who is a Lance Corporal. She said she called and got no answer and then attempted to push open the front door but it was locked.“So I go around to the back and open the door and I call but no one answer. I went inside and turn the knob on the first bedroom door and it was locked and so I went to the next bedroom and push open the door and then I discover this gruesome sight lying on the floor….”An alarm was then raised and several persons rushed into the building.Meanwhile, Carmichael explained that one of her great-grandchildren was on her step when the suspect came out of the house and she asked him what happened to Kenisha. “He didn’t answer her but when I look outside I see when he pack up a rope and walk out the yard and go along about his business… I see him walking over the bridge going to the sea dam side and then I go over,” she related.Meanwhile, Sheriff-Fraser’s eldest son told Guyana Times that for the past two days, his mother was acting in a strange manner. He said she told him that she had to be in Georgetown to conduct business but did not elaborate.Moreover, the son related that the suspect was very friendly and helpful to the family.The woman leaves to mourn three children ages 18, 11 and five years old, along with her husband and mother. Meanwhile, Police say the bodies are at the Anthony’s Funeral Home awaiting post-mortem examinations.last_img read more

Abraham double earns Lampard first win

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham runs to celebrate with boss Frank Lampard © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASNORWICH, United Kingdom, Aug 24 – Tammy Abraham fired Chelsea to their first win of the Frank Lampard era as the young striker’s double clinched a 3-2 victory against Norwich on Saturday.Lampard had gone three games without a win in all competitions since he took over as Chelsea manager, but the Blues legend finally got off the mark thanks to his faith in Abraham. Abraham had failed to score in his three previous appearances this term, but the 21-year-old striker bagged his first goal for the club to put Chelsea ahead in the sunshine at Carrow Road.A pulsating encounter saw Todd Cantwell equalise for Norwich before Mason Mount restored Chelsea’s advantage.Teemu Pukki’s fifth goal in three games this season brought Norwich back on level terms before half-time, only for Abraham to give Chelsea the points with his predatory second half finish.After a thrashing at Manchester United and a draw with Leicester in Chelsea’s first two Premier League matches, Lampard will have been encouraged by the displays of Abraham and Mount.He has pinned his hopes on the youngsters to lead Chelsea through a potentially difficult season that sees the club under a transfer ban and without their best player following Eden Hazard’s move to Real Madrid.While Chelsea have now conceded nine goals in four games in all competitions under Lampard, the former England midfielder will hope his team’s attacking potential keeps them afloat.When Pedro suffered a hamstring injury in the warm-up and was replaced by Ross Barkley, it left Lampard to send out the youngest start league line-up for Chelsea in 25 years at an average age of 24 years and 208 days.Abraham was one of the youngsters Lampard had backed to shine as he replaced Olivier Giroud after being benched against Leicester last weekend.Subjected to racist abuse on social media after missing the penalty which saw Chelsea lose the European Super Cup penalty shoot-out against Liverpool recently, Abraham took just three minutes to reward Lampard for his decision.Cesar Azpilicueta whipped over a precise cross and Abraham alertly drifted away from the Norwich defence to drill a fine first-time strike past Tim Krul from 10 yards.– Touchline celebrations –Abraham, who flourished on loan at second tier Aston Villa last season, celebrated by sprinting to the touchline to hug Lampard as the pair were mobbed by their team-mates.Three minutes later, Chelsea’s creaky defence was exposed by Emiliano Buendia’s burst into the penalty area.Buendia found Pukki, fresh from last weekend’s hat-trick against Newcastle, and this time the prolific Finland striker was the provider with a low cross that Cantwell turned in from close-range.Lampard’s team responded in the 17th minute when Norwich were caught in possession outside their own area and Christian Pulisic fed Mount, the 20-year-old midfielder cutting inside and firing home for his second goal of the season.Andreas Christensen’s point-blank header was superbly pushed over by Krul and Norwich were back on level terms in the 31st minute.Buendia played a pass to Pukki and, with Chelsea’s defenders slow to react, the former Celtic forward demonstrated why he has taken the Premier League by storm with an angled shot that evaded Kepa Arrizabalaga’s limp attempt to save.Mount and Pulisic were both narrowly off target, while Azpilicueta sliced over and Emerson shot straight at Krul as Chelsea pressed hard after the interval.Azpilicueta appealed in vain for a penalty after a challenge from Marco Stiepermann, but Chelsea’s pressure was rewarded in the 68th minute.Picked out by Mateo Kovacic, Abraham left Grant Hanley and Jamal Lewis in his wake as he jinked past the Norwich defenders before slamming a fierce strike past Krul’s mistimed dive.Norwich’s Ben Godfrey headed against the bar moments later, while Chelsea were denied a fourth goal when Kurt Zouma’s effort was disallowed by VAR for Giroud’s foul on Krul.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

On the hour mark Chris Nelis latched on to a long ball over the Milford defence to slot home. The third came on 70 minutes when Shane O’ Rourke headed home a cross on the counter attack. Good team performance from the Killybegs men and best for Milford was Caolan Mc Gettigan. Referee: Joe McHugh.Kildrum Tigers 2 Gweedore Celtic 3Gweedore went ahead when Jambo finished neatly from the edge off the box. Kildrum equalised from the spot through Jonny Mc Ginty before going ahead from a great Damian Crossan strike from 15 yards. Gweedore drew level just before halftime thanks to an own goal. Kildrum had a lot of possession in the second half but couldn’t find the breakthrough and were punished with 5 minutes remaining when Eamon McGee broke through the middle and finished to the bottom corner.Glenea United 1 Drumoghill F.C. 1In wintry conditions both sides had to settle for a point. Drumoghill played with the elements at their back in the 1st half and put the home side under pressure. In the 30th minute Ritchie Moore picked up a loose ball in the box but his close range effort was well saved by Joe Coll. As the half progressed Glenea came more into the game but were unable to create a clear chance. In the 2nd half the home side began to see more of the ball but failed to test the visiting keeper. Drumoghill took the lead on 65 minutes when a cross from the right was steered home by Moore from 15 yards. Glenea pressed hard for an equaliser but still found it hard to get an effort on target. Moore came closest to adding to the score-line when saw a header go just wide. Glenea almost equalised on 85 minutes when Eugene Maguire’s through ball released Darren Mc Geever but he saw his goal bound effort blocked by a defender.

Decent team efforts from both sides in windy conditions. Referee: Marty Mc Garrigle.Cranford United 2 Cappry Rovers 3Cappry overcame Cranford in a tough game with a late winner. Cappry started the game bright and came close on a few occasions. Cappry took the lead when Benny Mc Laughlin turned a Cranford defender on the end line and squared to the incoming midfielder who slotted home. Cranford equalised shortly after through Arthur Lynch. Cranford could have taken the lead before half time when they were awarded a penalty but the keeper saved Kyle Black’s spot kick. Instead it was Cappry who went in at half time in the lead through a Benny Mc Laughlin goal. The second half was closely contested and Cranford’s task was made harder when they were reduced to ten men in a controversial moment. Cranford then started to play with more desire and equalised through Ryan Mc Gonagle. The game seemed to be heading for a draw but in the last minute Benny Mc Laughlin won it for Cappry. Team effort from both teams.Watson Hire Division One Castlefin Celtic 3 Kerrykeel’71 F.C. 1Castlefin maintained their 100% league record with a hard fought victory over Kerrykeel on Sunday. In a scrappy opening neither side created any clear cut chances. Kerrykeel took the lead in the 35th minute through a Myles Mc Bride shot from 20 yards which flew into the top corner of the net. The home side responded immediately when Barry Tourish broke down the left and crossed to JP Malley who tapped home.

Castlefin finally got reward for their pressure in the 89th minute when Emmet White’s shot from 30 yards flew into the net.

Best wishes to Castlefin player Simon Mc Glinchey who suffered a serious injury in the match.Dunkineely Celtic 1 Lagan Harps 2A minute silence was observed before this game as a mark of respect to the late Rodger Meehan who sadly passed away on Saturday. Dunkineely played with the strong breeze in the first half and had Lagan under pressure from the start. The first chance fell to Adrian Nesbitt who clipped the outside of the post from the edge of the box after 5 minutes. Other efforts from Andrew Mackey and Daniel Gallagher went just wide of the target. Lagan’s first chance fell to Stephen O’ Donnell, who cut in from the left wing, but his shot from 20 yards went harmlessly wide.

Dunkineely continued to press and Mackey and Nesbitt both had efforts go narrowly wide. Lagan got their equaliser on 35 minutes when Stephen O’ Donnell converted from the penalty spot.With the elements at their back Lagan came out strongly in the second half and had Dunkineely pressed back for long periods. The home team defended well and restricted Lagan to long range efforts. On 72 minutes Lagan took the lead when a long clearance from the keeper was not dealt with and Chris Toner won the race with the keeper to poke the ball home. Dunkineely fought hard to get back into the game and Cian Kennedy had a shot well saved by the Lagan keeper. Dunkineely had strong claims for a penalty turned down on 80 minutes. Andrew Mackey made a strong burst into the penalty area and was brought down but the referee awarded a free on the edge of the box. Andrew Mackey’s effort cannoned off the wall and Paul Murrin struck the outside of the post from the rebound.

Glenree pressed for an equaliser without reward. Poor defending from another corner allowed Mc Glanaghey to tap home for his 2nd of the game.
