(NEWS SOURCE GUYANA) – Police investigators have taken five men into custody over the gruesome murder of 18-year-old Ranella Benfield, of 99 Canterbury Walk, Beterverwagting, ECD.

The young woman who worked at Qualfon as a receptionist was last seen alive on Saturday. Her body was discovered early this morning in a cemetery in the BV area with her face completely ripped off.

Shocked relatives said when the young woman did not return home over the weekend, they thought that she was working extra hours and did not become too worried.

The discovery of the body has left the East Coast community in disbelief as persons try to figure out exactly what may have taken place.

When her body was found, the blue jeans she was wearing was pulled down to just above her knees and her two hands were in closed position close to her face.

A post-mortem examination is expected to look at whether the young woman was sexually assaulted before being murdered.

Police investigators believe that might very well be the case. The probe continues.

  1. maisyai awa ee raping wasnt enough like seriously yow awa ee maysayi jail i sending all of them and die in their moda cont.

  2. The things i read about happening in Guyana are the most evil i have ever heard of.Beginning in the 70's i watch Guyana become more lawless and dangerous than any place i know.In one house you have a family quietly trying to get some sleep and in the very house next door you have a bunch of people blasting loud,loud music with the most disgusting lyrics and this is late at night.Does anyone remember Sheema Mangar? She was the young lady on her way home from work at Demerara Bank one afternoon in 2010 when her phone was snatched from her.She stood in front of the car the criminals were driving to try to stop them from driving off and the evil bastards ran her over and dragged her.Twenty one year old Sheema died in a way no human being should.A young,hard working girl in the heart of Georgetown is not supposed to die this way.I often overhear conversations where Guyanese people laugh at people's misfortunes and make fun of harming them physically.Guyana is lawless and out of control.Finding oil in Guyana is probably the worst thing that could happen right now.Ranella Benfield was just a young girl with her whole life ahead of her.Isn't it disgraceful that her death was reported on the same page in the newspapers where they have an ad for tourism inviting foreigners to visit beautiful Guyana.
