Women's Issues In Guyana

Villagers allege dead woman was an “Ole Higue”

Guyana Chronicle – April 29, 2007

The naked body of a woman allegedly beaten to death by villagers who claim she was an “ole Higue” was found on a parapet aback of Bare Root , East Coast Demerara, early yesterday morning, blood oozing from her mouth.

Villagers say she is not from the area.

Scores of villagers rushed to the scene early this morning when the gruesome discovery was made and after some time. The police were summoned to the scene and they took some residents with them for questioning.

Close to where the body was found is a house in which a woman lives with her baby, and villagers said that teeth-marks were evident on the child’s skin.

It is believed that the woman was beaten when she was discovered in the house and later dumped on the parapet.

The police were unavailable for a comment yesterday.
