We the innocent, led by the unknown, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful!
We have done so much with so little, so we are now qualified to do anything with nothing!

US Embassy Officials finger Mark Benschop in Joel Fraser's murder-Wikileaks Cables
In one of the Wikileaks cables dated and titled "Dec 15, 2009 Embassy Georgetown 100 Young and Duke Streets Kingston, Georgetown, G… OEXC, OIIP, CVIS, KPAO, GY" with a Reference ID: 09GEORGETOWN1007 and created on 2009-12-15 at 18:06:00 hrs, a US Embassy official reports of Mark Benschop's involvement in the death of actor Joel Fraser who was found with his throat slashed on the Georgetown Seawalls on November 25th of that year. The official also was concerned that Benschop subsequently left Guyana for the U.S and requested FBI surveillance for Benschop while in that country.
Benschop was also labeled an antagonist and threat to local security by the official.
At the time Fraser's body was found he was wearing only his underpants and a t-shirt. Valuables, which he had in his possession, including a laptop computer and production material for the premiere of the Mori J’von Comedy Jam, were missing. Reports back then indicated that Fraser was having a relationship with Benschop's ex-wife up until his death. He also confided in his close friends that he had received numerous death threats by an unknown caller on several occasions.
