A four-month-old baby is
now fatherless as his mother grieves the loss of her husband following
an accident along the East Coast Demerara (ECD) roadway.
Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited employee, 31-year-old David Matthew
Headly was killed around 05:00h on Sunday when the car he was driving
slammed into a bridge rail at Felicity, ECD.
Headly, who hailed from Lot 370 Powise Close, South Ruimveldt Gardens,
Georgetown, was reportedly one of the key officers in the technological
overhaul of the bank.
Reports are that the now dead man’s motor vehicle (PRR 2531) was
allegedly speeding West along the Southern carriageway of the ECD road
when it collided with the iron rail of the bridge on the Southern side
of the road at Felicity.
According to the police, Headly sustained injuries about his body and
was removed from his vehicle in an unconscious state. He was rushed to
the Georgetown Public Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Attempts on Sunday to contact his spouse, Jenisha Budhram, who is also
an employee at Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited, proved futile.
However, on social media, by way of her Facebook page, the young distraught widow lamented over the loss of her loved one.
“My life was so perfect that it felt almost too good to be real. Well,
it was too good to be real. Look how I thought my son would have the
best father in the world to see him grow up and teach him how to be just
like him,” she posted on her Facebook page some hours after receiving
the news about her spouse’s death.
Just recently, Headly and his wife held a dedication service for their four-month-old son at the church they attended.
Meanwhile, the police have launched an investigation into Headly’s
accident. His post-mortem examination (PME) is expected to be conducted
