Director of Prisons Gladwin Samuels told the Guyana Chronicle that George, 22, was found motionless in the holding area at the prison and was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

George was arrested this year at his mother’s Better Hope, East Coast Demerara home. He was reportedly shot in Suriname which caused him to be confined to a wheelchair.
