CaribWorldNews, NEW YORK, NY, Thurs. Mar. 4, 2010: New York City police officers today resumed their investigation into a 12-year-old murder case allegedly involving a Guyanese national.
Cops resumed digging the basement of a plumbing-supply store in Jamaica, Queens, in search of the body of a student, who vanished a dozen years ago, New York Post reports indicate.
Kristina Kupka, a Brauch College student, woman vanished in 1998 while she was five months pregnant with her married professor`s child.
Kupka`s lover and chemistry instructor at the time, Guyanese national, Darshanad Persaud, was a prime suspect in her disappearance, but without evidence he was never arrested.
A cadaver-sniffing dog has indicated there were human remains in the basement of the shop and investigators claim one section of the concrete floor did not match the rest. The shop at the time was an auto-supply store run by Khemraj Maraj, Persaud`s cousin.
