An autopsy has confirmed that Ramdai Mohabir, 67, the senior found dead in her bed at Albion on Monday, died of manual strangulation.
The autopsy was performed on Wednesday by government pathologist Dr. Vivekanand Brijmohan at the New Amsterdam Hospital.
Mohabir, called ‘Aunty Elsie,’ of Lot 665 Topoo, Albion was discovered on Monday morning by her children. She was also raped in the attack and $6,000 was stolen.
Her son, Deonarine Ramdeo, said he made the discovery of his mother around 5.30 AM after his wife alerted him that something was amiss at his mother’s home, a one-flat wooden house located approximately 22 feet away. Mohabir lived alone in the house.
There have been no arrests in connection with the woman’s death so far but police investigations are continuing.
