Tobago teacher dies of blunt force trauma to head

AN autopsy on 24-year-old nursery school teacher Kayla Marie Cain-Solomon, of Lowlands Tobago, has determined that she died as a result of craniocerebral injuries due to multiple blunt force trauma to the head. The autopsy was done by Dr Eslyn McDonald-Burris at the Scarborough General Hospital mortuary on Monday.

Cain-Solomon was attacked with a hammer by a man known to her on Friday last. She was at the home of a fellow school teacher in Lambeau Village, Tobago. The man has not yet been arrested.

The incident occurred at about 8.20am at a house next to the Dorothy Moses Nursery School in full view of the victim’s two children ages five and seven.

Jerry Ali, a member of the school board, confirmed that classes will resume tomorrow after a PTA meeting with parents yesterday.

This brings to two the murder toll in Tobago for 2018.

On January 24, Tobago entrepreneur 47-year-old James Wise was found unresponsive at about 6 am in the yard of his home at Crompston Trace in Crown Point. The father of three was lying face down and there were visible chop wounds on his head.
