Fugitive suspect in Guyana murder cuffed in Queens

A man wanted for murder in Guyana was nabbed 2,643 miles from the crime scene — in Queens Tuesday, law enforcement sources said.

Marcus Bisram, 27, was arrested by members of the NYPD/U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force in the Rockaways about 1 p.m. after about eight months on the lam, sources said.

“He was living here in plain view,” one source said.

Bisram is accused of masterminding the murder of carpenter Faiyaz Narinedatt last Oct. 31 in Guyana.

The 26-year-old father of two allegedly slapped Bisram after rejecting his sexual advances at a party, the Guyana Chronicle reported after the killing.

Bisram was so enraged, he enlisted four others — including two teenagers — to beat Narinedatt to death, according to the Chronicle.

Narinedatt’s body was found on 70 Village Rd. in Berbice the next day, officials said.

Police arrested his attackers, who confessed that Bisram ordered them to commit the crime.

The suspects admitted that they pummeled Narinedatt to death, put his body into the trunk of a car and took him to Village Road.

There they claim to have driven over his lifeless body to make it appear like he was the victim of a hit-and-run.

After the slaying, Bisram returned to his life in Arverne, Queens, where he runs the Marcus Brian Bisram Foundation, which is focused on “making better, brighter futures.”

Six months before Narinedatt was killed, Bisram donated $ 672,000 to five Guyanese students and pleased to give the Berbice community $ 200 million a year.

Bisram is expected to be presented in Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday.

Guyana, which reissued a fugitive warrant for Bisram in March, will have to petition for his extradition, authorities said.

It will be the first time in recent memory that the South American nation has made the request.
