Was O.W. killing revenge for AIDS infection?

Story Picture
The plot thickens in the investigation into the weekend murder of Orange Walk merchant Ghanshayan Alamchandani. This morning police detained a suspect in the case, saying only that he was a man “close to the victim”. At the same time information reaching News 5 indicates a possible motive that is nothing short of disturbing. Alamchandani, according to reliable sources, was HIV positive, having been infected with the AIDS virus in 1998. It is alleged that in the years following the diagnosis Alamchandani boasted that he would infect as many people as possible and continued to engage in unprotected sex with a wide range of women, including prostitutes and various girlfriends, both single and married. According to one theory being explored by police, Alamachandani’s murder was an act of revenge by someone he had infected with HIV. That, according to investigators, would explain the extreme violence of ten stab wounds to the head and face, a sheet around the victim’s neck and a pillow over his face.
