(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) A central Trinidad wife is blaming black magic for her husband’s disappearance.
Keith Murray, 39, did not return home from work last week Thursday and his family is pleading for the public’s assistance in finding him.
His wife, Radhay Maharaj, said her husband had not been himself for the past year and she was worried about his safety.
The family lives at Gail Trace, Palmiste, Longdenville.
Maharaj said her husband left his workplace, a woodwork factory in Cunupia, at around 5p.m.
He took a taxi to Enterprise, Chaguanas, but never made it home.
“He would usually be home by 6p.m. But when I didn’t see him I told my daughter to take a bligh and call the boss lady. The boss lady said my husband left work normal time. I waited all night for him and he did not come home. The next day I went to the police and made a report,” she said.
Maharaj said her husband recently returned to work as he had been acting strangely the past year.
“Someone cast a spirit on him and he was not himself. He was saying all kinds of strange things and acting up. I was the breadwinner in the family for a long time and he just went back to work. I don’t know what happened,” she said.
Maharaj, 51, said her husband would not turn his back on their family.
She said their two children – ages 19 and 16 – were traumatised and wanted their father to return home.
“My daughter was screaming for her daddy to come home. She said she not eating or drinking anything because he was out there with no money,” she said.
Maharaj distributed flyers throughout Longdenville on Monday, hoping that someone would have information on her husband’s whereabouts.
Anyone with information on Murray can contact 800-TIPS, 555, 999 or any police station.
