Varswyk helped massacre accused escape from cops in Linden
Murder accused Uree Varswyk, the Camp Street prison escapee who was shot dead during a confrontation with Joint Services ranks last Thursday, used the training he had acquired as a police officer to help Bartica massacre convict Mark Royden Williams escape, according to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Clifton Hicken.
Hicken made this disclosure yesterday when asked for an update on the search for Williams. “Varswyk being trained, when the vehicles responded, brought down evasive fire, giving Williams coverage,” he told reporters, while adding that as the ranks were focused on the threat, Williams managed to flee. Varswyk was shot dead minutes before midnight on Thursday during a Joint Services operation at Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden. An autopsy revealed that Varswyk died as a result of shock and haemorrhage due to multiple gunshot wounds.
