Seven FBI agents arrived in Guyana to assist authorities with investigations into the suspected murder of two US Missionaries.
Richard Hicks, 42, and his wife Charlene 58, from the Florida-based Wycliffe Bible Translators Society were found dead in their ranch on an Amerindian reserve in Guyana close to the Brazilian border.
Both bodies bore signs of having been bludgeoned. Mr Hick's body was also burnt beyond recognition.
The seven FBI agents arrived in response to a request for help from the Guyanese police.
