According to reports out of Division ‘B’ of the Guyana Police Force, the suspect, who is no stranger to police, admitted that he dealt several chops to Michael Kissoon.
The suspect reportedly admitted to police that Michael Kissoon sodomised him frequently while he was under the influence of narcotics and asleep. He said when he awakens he has to endure the discomfort in the rear.   One of those episodes took place on Saturday night and when the suspect got up on Sunday he confronted his molester.  About 09:45 hours on Sunday an argument ensued.
The suspect reportedly told detectives that he picked up the cutlass and chopped Michael Kissoon on the back of the head, right ear, right hand, left side head, left shoulder and left upper arm. Kissoon collapsed and appeared to be dead.
Moments later, the suspect went to the Central Police Station where he reported the matter and was detained. According to police reports, the victim was taken to the New Amsterdam Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
An autopsy is expected to be performed today Monday.
