Friends of Captain Orwain Sandy, the Aide-de-Camp to the Army’s Chief of Staff, who allegedly shot his reputed wife dead earlier today at Alexander Village are claiming that the woman’s brazen unfaithfulness had provoked Sandy into killing her.
According to one of the man’s friends, who is an East Bank Demerara money changer known as Passa, the Army Captain allegedly discovered that Payne was having an extramarital affair with a city businessman, and was also seeing one of her customers with whom she flew to New York with on a regular basis.
The man added that this infuriated Payne, and led to repeated embarrassing incidents between the two.
It is understood that the situation reached its peak a few days ago, after the Army Captain had found communication on Payne’s mobile phone and her Facebook which confirmed that she was having an affair with a named city businessman and one of her customers from the Mueshwers’ travel agency where she worked.
However, the woman refused to discuss her alleged infidelity with the Captain when confronted, and further refuse to end any of her alleged affairs.
As a matter of fact, the man’s friend is alleging that during a recent exchange on the Kitty Seawall, the now-dead woman had told Captain Sandy that she is moving on with her life.
It is understood that the Captain had just finished building a new luxury house at Paradise on the East Coast of Demerara for Payne and had also bought her a luxury SUV.
The man’s friends are of the view that the captain most likely became frustrated and hurt at the fact that he had left his wife for Payne, invested so much in her, and now has to face the reality of her alleged infidelity.
They believe that Payne’s actions were the very reason why he shot and killed her earlier today, after probably confronting her about her alleged affairs one last time in his car.
