Banduthilake said the police found Cader's body with stab wounds in the left
part of his neck, lying in a pool of blood at his two storied house down
Java Lane in Slave Island on early Tuesday (12) morning. After initial
investigations the police are currently on the look-out for a man who had
earlier worked for Cader at his Galle Face food outlet. According to police
sources the suspect has been seen by a number of people in the neighbourhood
while he was running out of Cader's house with money and the knife used for
the stabbing. The suspect is believed to be a disgruntled former employee of
Cader's who left around five months ago. According to witnesses one of
Cader's employees had wrestled with the suspect when he reached the front
door. The suspect had taken off dropping the knife and the money outside
Cader's house. According to information received, this man is a drug addict
and is constantly on the look-out for money to buy drugs. "At this
stage we believe the motive for the killing to be a personal grudge with the
victim," said Banduthilake.
