George Hyde, a 36 year-old resident of Buena Vista, was chopped to death at a friend’s house on Easter Sunday. It is believed that he was killed by a man with whom he had past conflicts. 4 persons are now detained, and are being investigated for his murder.

Police say that on Sunday, April 1, at around 8 p.m., they visited a house in Buena Vista Village, where they found Hyde’s lifeless body on the verandah. He had suffered chop wounds to the neck, the left shoulder and the face. His body was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital, where it currently awaits a post mortem.

The father of three was socializing with these four persons on Easter Sunday. All were imbibing alcohol and joking along when an altercation occurred over a previous misunderstanding, where the deceased then tried to defend himself with a machete.

Nevertheless; George Hyde was mercilessly chopped to the neck, left shoulder and face, then left to die on the verandah of the house.

It is unclear why Hyde was attacked, but police say that he was involved in past disagreements.

Assistant Police Commissioner Joseph Myvette, the Head of the National Criminal Investigation’s Branch, told the press, “From our understanding, there seems to have been several altercations which the deceased was involved in… prior to his murder.”

While the police are treating this case as a death investigation, with the completion of the post mortem further directives will then be awaited from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
