‘Stumbling block’ prevents the autopsy of 3-year-old Allon Ramdial

An autopsy on the body of three-year old Allon Ramdial is yet to be conducted and can’t be as the pathologist’s hands are tied … at least for the moment.

The remains of the toddler were found at a cove at the end of the Ortoire River Mouth four days ago.

Police are investigating just how the boy came to fall into the river.

Meanwhile the boy’s 19-year-old mother Cristianna Ramdial has been vilified on social media for her choices and lifestyle, and described as an unfit mother who had failed her little boy.

Minister of Social Development and Family Services Donna Cox said that Allon was never registered and his mother had no identification card.

Cox said she was in contact with Mayaro MP Rushton Paray to do as much as they could to help the teenaged mother.

Speaking with News Power Now this morning, MP Parray said that the absence of a birth Certificate for the child presented a major stumbling block.

In newspaper reports this morning the child’s grandmother Lauren Ramdial said her daughter was traumatised and pleaded for counselling for her daughter who she said was having a difficult time following the death.

However MP Paray told our newsroom this morning that to the best of his knowledge she was not presently receiving such help.
