A sandpit labourer was Sunday night arrested and believed to be the prime suspect in the killing of a female taxi driver whose nude body was found next to her car at a loam pit off the Soesdyke-Linden Highway.
The dead woman has been identified as 31-year old Savitri “Mia” Parma of Lot 4 Soesdyke Public Road.
Investigators were able to identify and arrest the 23-year old man who is a labourer at Bashir Loam and Sandpit, based on information provided by Parma’s husband.
She had apparently called her husband on his phone about 8:45 Sunday night that she had just dropped of someone at Buddy’s Farm and someone else wanted to go to the loam pit. She had told him that the person looked like someone who worked at the pit.
Demerara Waves Online News was told that the suspect of Yarrowkabra was caught a short distance away from the crime scene and was badly beaten by citizens.
Parma’s body was found outside her car on the sand.
Members of a search-party also found her eight-year old son, who had slept through the fatal ordeal of his mother, in the back seat of the car. He was unhurt.
