Brian Pitam, a 28-year-old 'DJ' of Lot 441 Goed Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was allegedly murdered by three men, one of whom is in custody.
The incident occurred at around 21:00 h on Sunday at Laluni Village on the Soesdyke Linden Highway.
Investigations thus far revealed that Pitam and his father-in-law Kumar Bacchus, a 51-year-old truck driver, were at Laluni on the Soesdyke Linden Highway imbibing at a shop.
The three suspects confronted the duo and dealt Bacchus a lash to his face. Pitam intervened and was dealt several chops about his body. The trio then rode off on their motorcycles in an unknown direction.
The DJ was picked up by public-spirited citizens and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Investigators observed that Pitam's left thumb, index finger, and middle fingers were severed along with the left wrist partially severed and a deep chop wound to the back of the neck. Investigations are ongoing.
