Two gay men murdered, suspect kills self



GEORETOWN, Guyana, Jul 20, CMC – The suspect in the murder of two homosexual sex workers early this morning (Sunday), committed suicide hours later in the day by setting himself afire.

The suspect, Samuel Bristol, 31, doused himself with gasoline and set his body on fire outside the Bourda Post Office in Georgetown.

Before succumbing at the Georgetown Hospital, Bristol, confessed to the murders and said he had nothing to live for.

Two homosexual sex workers were stabbed to death on the streets of Georgetown early this morning (Sunday), allegedly by Bristol, the spurned lover of another.

The body of Jason John was found in Leopold Street and that of Carl Sinclair was found just over a block away in Lombard Street. Both were lying in pools of blood.

Bristol, the ex-lover of five years with a colleague of the gay men, all commercial sex workers, had reportedly earlier thrown gasoline on his former partner and attempted to set him alight in the vicinity of Georgetown’s landmark St George’s Cathedral.

But, eyewitnesses say, that other sex workers intervened and halted the man in the act, and he fled.

Bristol reportedly later attacked John and Sinclair with a knife in Leopard Street, where John died. Though wounded, Sinclair fled but the man caught up with him in Lombard Street an dealt the sex worker several more stabs, killing him at that location.
