A 42-year-old Cunupia woman was found dead inside her partially burning vehicle on Saturday night.
The victim is Sherry Ann Candice Joseph-Jemmott – a hairdresser of Welcome Road, Esperanza, Cunupia.
Reports are that police responded to a call around 10pm, of a vehicle on fire at Almond Drive, Farm Road, in the Carlsen Field area.
Upon reaching the scene, they found a silver Nissan Tiida smoking on the inside.
On closer inspection, the officers saw Joseph-Jemmot’s body seated in the driver’s seat with flames around her.
The woman was unresponsive and motionless.
When the flame subsided officers noticed that Joseph-Jemmott’s clothing was doused with a liquid believed to be kerosene and an empty jar of pills was found on the front passenger seat.
A box of matches and a wet roll of paper towels were also found.
The keys were in the ignition and the vehicle was parked in a remote area in the middle of the roadway.
