I posted this story on October 17th about John Blanchard who attacked his children with a machete. All the children died and now John Blanchard is held in prison for the attacks. In jail apparently the inmates were displeased at the offense he committed and tore him a new asshole. Can we really feel sorry for him?
According to Knews the Director of Prisons, Dale Erskine, has said that the prison authorities are awaiting a report from the Guyana Police Force on the two attacks on John Blanchard who is currently on remand for the murder of his three children.When contacted recently Erskine said the investigation is currently ongoing and noted that based on the findings, necessary action will be taken against those who are found culpable.
Two Fridays ago Blanchard was attacked and beaten by inmates of the Camp Street Prison. There are reports that the man was also sodomized. This, however, has been refuted by Prison officials.
The man who allegedly killed his three children was treated at the Georgetown Public Hospital and sent away. However upon his return to the facility on Saturday night the man was attacked and beaten again. According to reports it was only after the second attack by inmates that prison officials found it fit to place the man in isolation.
Some two weeks ago Blanchard went berserk and hacked his three children, Daniel, Belica and Joy, while they were sleeping at their Soesdyke home. Belica and Daniel reportedly died almost instantly while Joy succumbed to her wounds a few days later while she was being treated at the Georgetown Public Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.
Blanchard has since only been charged for the murder of Balica and Daniel. A source close to the investigation said that Blanchard is expected to be charged for the murder of the third child, Joy Blanchard on November 1 when he will make his next appearance in court.
The three children were laid to rest on Thursday last after a very emotional sermon at the Soesdyke Nazarene Church.
Meanwhile, as it relates to the investigation into the two attacks in the prison, a source close to the Blanchard investigation has stated that no official report on the incident has been submitted to the Guyana Police Force.
