Yet another woman brutally murdered at the hands of a relative

Yet another woman has been brutally murdered,at the hands of an estranged relative, this time in Guapo, South Trinidad. Also killed in the attack a pensioner and her son who had taken in the woman when she was thrown out of her home.

Sey­celles Han­nah, a 41-year-old moth­er was taken in to her home by the kindness of 69 year old pensioner Ces­lyn Far­rell and her son 48 year old Patrick Far­rell, since No­vem­ber last year. Han­nah and her belongings were thrown out by a male rel­a­tive. Her clothing and personal effects dropped off at the Do­min­ion City Church at Point Fortin Main Road.

Police found a bloodstained machete and garden hoe in the rubble of the burnt out house . Police believe the man who mur­dered the three at a house at Guapo on Thurs­day be­fore set­ting it ablaze with gaso­line, may have used the machette and hoe to ex­e­cute the three.

The investigating of­fi­cers con­tin­ue to find gruesome clues to solve the triple mur­der/ar­son which rocked the com­mu­ni­ty of Guapo. They be­lieve the man came through the open back door and carried out the attacks. They found droplets of blood in a trail lead­ing about 100 feet away from the house.There were blood­stains spatters on the walls of the liv­ing room and on the wash­ing ma­chine suggesting he dealt them several fatal blows before setting the house ablaze. Hannah’s limbs were dismembered.

This latest tragic murder brings to 9 the number of women murdered so far this year, most of them at the hands of estranged relatives.
