(kaieteurnewsonline) – The Guyana Police Force has issued a wanted bulletin for 21-year-old Shaquan Alleyne after the decomposed body of his 20-year-old girlfriend, Shonette Dover, was discovered by ranks in a shallow grave at the back of his Canvas City home in the wee hours of Friday morning. The woman was missing for 28 days leaving family and friends deeply concerned about her whereabouts.
According to the police, Dover’s 15-year-old sister was contacted on Thursday evening and was interviewed in the presence of a Child Care and Probation Officer. During the interrogation process, Kaieteur News understands that the teen allegedly confessed to the crime and agreed to take investigators to the scene where she said, she, along with Shaquan, allegedly buried her sister.
The teen told investigators that on the night the victim went ‘missing’, Saturday, April 3, last, Alleyne was oiling his brownish gun in his living room. She said the 21-year-old then pointed the gun at her sister who told him “he like play and he should put away that thing.” The young lady said she then heard a loud sound, akin to that of a firework.
Alleyne who is not a licensed firearm holder subsequently exclaimed, “Oh shoots, I shoot that girl!”
The 15-year-old said she then saw her sister’s mouth open as her blood quickly started to cover her face. Upon seeing this, she said to Shaquan, “Let’s take her to the hospital” but the boyfriend refused as he retorted, “No, she dead already.”
Alleyne then accompanied the sister to his father and told him of what he did. Alleyne’s father then told him “don’t tell (me) stupidness, why (you) playing with the gun?”
After doing their collective deliberation about what to do with the body, they decided that it was best to bury her in the backyard unknown to other parties. Armed with a spade, Kaieteur News understands that the suspects dug a shallow hole after which Shonette’s body was rolled into it and covered up. Alleyne then hid the gun.
Commander of Region 10, Hugh Winter, said that the father did not participate in burying the victim while adding that the sister and the boyfriend subsequently left the scene on a motorcycle.
