(Trinidad Express) An elderly woman was found murdered in her home at Chaguanas today.
The victim has been identified by police as Ramdevi Singh, 75.
Her body was discovered in her own blood around mid-morning. The body was on the living-room floor of the house at Imam Shah Street.
Police said that Singh was found nude with an object tied around her neck.
Officers of Chaguanas CID and Homicide Region III responded.
Singh is the 40th woman to be killed for the year according to an Express tally.
On Saturday the body of Dr Claire Broadbridge was discovered with her throat slit in her home at Fondes Amandes Road, St Ann’s.
Broadbridge, a former director of the National Museum and Art Gallery, was found dead in the bedroom of her home around 6 p.m. on Saturday.
Her throat had been slit, and the assailants apparently set furniture on the ground floor of the home in an attempt to burn down the two-storey building.
