File on Senior Cop who killed cyclist sent back to DPP

The Guyana Police Force on Friday said that the case file for Deputy Superintendent of Police Mr.Patrick Todd, has been completed and returned to the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions for further advice.

A post mortem examination conducted on the victim who was involved in an accident with the senior police officer on the West Coast Demerara last week stated that the cause of death was given as multiple injuries.

The senior police officer allegedly killed the cyclist whilst driving his motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He has been placed under close arrest. Dead is Conrad Alleyne age 64 of 33 Hague, West Coast Demerara.

The fatal accident occurred about 19:20hrs on the 12 September, on the Boerasirie Bridge, West Coast Demerara, involving motorcar PTT 992 driven by Todd who was stationed in ‘D’ Division.

Initial enquiries from the driver revealed that as he was proceeding east along the northern side of the bridge, he suddenly felt an impact and upon investigating saw the cyclist lying on the bridge with injuries about his body.

He was taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital in a semi-conscious condition, treated and referred to the GPHC, but succumbed on his way. The body is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral Home, awaiting a post-mortem examination.

An investigation has since been launched by a Senior Officer who visited the scene and also conducted a breathalyzer test on the Officer, who was found to be above the legal limit.
