TRINIDAD: Wife found hanging, with bag over head

(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – An autopsy was expected to be performed Thursday to confirm what caused the death of 54-year-old Dularie Ramnarine.

Ramnarine, who lived at a home along the Eastern Main Road, Valencia, died yesterday at the Sangre Grande District Hospital.

Foul play is suspected. The Express was told that at about 9a.m. on Thursday, Ramnarine’s common-law husband, Esmond Joseph, was in Arima, when he got a phone call from his wife.

He told police that she sounded panicked and he heard strange noises over the phone.

The call then ended. Joseph said he tried to call his wife back several times but was unsuccessful. As a result, he made his way home.

He told police that upon entering, he found his wife hanging from a cord, with a bag over her head.

There also appeared to be blood on her chest. Joseph notified the police and officers from the Valencia Police Post arrived within minutes.

The woman was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The first responders notified their senior officers in the Eastern Division, as well as the Homicide Bureau.

A team of officers supervised by ACP Jacob and Snr Sup Belfon, with assistance from Inspector Pierre and Sgt Garcia, visited the scene.
