Funeral arrangements for Chaguanas resident, Ramdevi Singh, 75, who was found brutally murdered at her home on Monday morning, are yet to be finalised. Relatives are awaiting the arrival of her two adult sons from abroad to decide on the date and time for the last rites. In the meantime, Ramdevi's brother Sen Visham said relatives remain shocked and bewildered at the violent death which befell her. He said they are clueless as to why anyone would want to harm someone who had contributed so much to the society. He said police only cleared the crime scene yesterday.
The nude body of Singh, a mother of two and grandmother of three of Imamshah Street, Chaguanas was found by her husband Martin, 79, a stroke patient, face down on the floor of her living room with injuries to the head. She was stabbed and strangled.
Her killing occurred two days after former director of the National Museum and Art Gallery, Dr Claire Broadbridge, 80, was killed at her home at Fondes Amandes Road, St Ann’s.
Singh, a retiree with Guardian Life Insurance, lived with her husband whom she took care of since he cannot speak or walk properly having suffered two strokes. To date no one has been arrested.
