Cops baffled as murdered woman’s cousin killed in Freeport

Sunday, January 7, 2018

When Brandon Joseph Khan's family left home to pay final respects to their murdered cousin, Arisa David, they could have never imagined mourning his death the following day.

It was the second murder that baffled police yesterday after the mutilated body of a woman was also found in Trincity

Khan, 23, of Chase Village, Carapichaima, was found dead shortly after noon in Chickland, Freeport, with a gunshot wound to his head. Police said they responded to a report of a man's body found in some bushes along Randal Road. His white Mazda 3 sedan was parked a short distance away.

According to relatives, he did not go to David's funeral on Friday and remained at his in-laws home nearby. When his wife and others returned to the Agostini Settlement home, he was still at his in-laws home. He was expected to return home that night, but when he didn't, they called his mobile phone several times and searched for him.

Yesterday morning, he was reported missing to Freeport police and within a few hours, they were told that a body matching his description had been found. His identity was confirmed when they arrived on the scene.

Khan, who got married in July 2017, had a four-month-old son and was training to become an Emergency Medical Technician. Police said there has been no link to David's murder. David, 25, a mother of two, was choked to death by a 36-year-old relative in their Chaguanas home on Tuesday. Investigators have submitted additional information to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and are awaiting instructions on whether to charge the suspect.
