The man, who bludgeoned a 77-year old woman, has been caught and he has since confessed that he was hired by one of her relatives for GUY$700,000 to kill her and search the house for property documents.
Police sources said Colin Semple and two other persons were arrested at a house at Guyhoc, Georgetown.
He confessed to killing Danrasie “Carmen” Ganesh on August 1 at a house at Montrose, East Coast Demerara. The woman was the caretaker of the property.
The incident was captured on surveillance video, but Semple failed to retrieve the DVD that contained the footage. Police then used the footage to see the entire episode, captured a still image and issue a wanted bulletin for the perpetrator.
He used a spanner to strike the woman several times even after she fell to the ground.
At the time of his arrest, he was wearing the same clothes that he had committed the act in.
Equipped with a key provided by the woman’s relative, Semple hid in a car while the woman was cutting flowers for her daily ritual. He then entered the house and pounced on her as she was conducting her chores.
