On Sunday, Bahadoor was bludgeoned to death by the 18-year-old teen as she sat in her wheelchair in her home in Chaguanas.

A relative said that the teen had a lot of mental problems. She claimed he said he was “seeing spirits” which led to him participating in the psychiatric programme as well as attending drug rehabilitation. She admitted that overall he was a “nice person” but that he couldn’t solve his mental problems.
