Safe house rented in early October
Wanted fugitives Dale Moore and Mark Fraser who were killed in shoot-outs on Monday were residents in the Lamaha Gardens safe house for the last three weeks.
According to reports the men had been invited to the house by an occupant who had rented the premises.
Meanwhile as police remained silent on the identity of three of the victims of Monday's shooting spree, the body of the male discovered in the Le Repentir cemetery is believed to be that of a foreign national.
His identity continued to baffle police yesterday although reports in other sections of the media have suggested that he is from an East Coast Demerara community.
Sources also told this newspaper that there was no ransom demanded for Nandalall. No money was found at the premises among the items police showcased on Monday nor was any said to have been found on Moore or Fraser when they were killed.
At the Section M Campbellville premises where police said they had shot another unidentified man, an occupant told this newspaper that the owner lives overseas.
The person was however not able to shed any light on the events of the previous day.
Meanwhile Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent, David Ramnarine acknowledged that Lancelot Roach, the man who was discovered in the green Toyota Sprinter with Fraser, was the son of a senior officer who works in the police communications department.
But Ramnarine said it was not possible for their communication system to be compromised since they do not contract out such services. Areas which concern sensitive materials especially that of information are not contracted out to private individuals, he said. Accord-ing to Ramnarine, such works are only contracted to reputable companies and only after it is discussed at the highest level of the force.
