Identities still to be released of Guyanese mom, daughters found dead in Maryland

Up to press time last night, police in the US state of Maryland were still to release the identities of a Guyanese woman and her two infant daughters who were found dead in a car in a parking lot.

Authorities have since revealed that the father of the two children is a Guyanese. He has stated that he was not living with the woman and the two children. Authorities were having difficulties locating other relatives.

The woman is said to be 32-years old, the Associated Press said, while CBS reported that her children, both girls, are 6-months and 18-months old.

Captain Paul Kifer of the Hagerstown Police Department is reported as saying that there were no indications of what caused the three deaths.

This is likely to be determined by an autopsy carried out by the state medical examiner’s office in Baltimore.

The bodies were reportedly spotted in a car by an employee of the Western Heights Middle School late Monday afternoon. The car’s ignition was off and the windows were up even though the temperature at that time was near 90 degrees.

Kiefer told the Associated Press that “surveillance video at a local Wal-Mart showed the woman buying a DVD player about 6 a.m. Monday. Police found a receipt and the player in the car…”

Neither the woman nor her children have known connections to the school which is around three miles from their rented home in the East End, Keifer told the Associated Press.
