Athlete still assisting police with hit-and-run probe

THE TT world championship gold medallist in custody for a hit-and-run incident in July which claimed the life of Lenora Patrick, 55, of Mary’s Hill, is still assisting Tobago police.

The athlete, who was arrested in Trinidad after surrendering to the Barataria police in the presence of his attorney and transferred to Tobago on Monday, was put on an ID parade yesterday morning.

David Powder, ASP for Tobago West, said no charges have been laid and police are still investigating.

The athlete is the only suspect held for questioning.

When Newsday Tobago asked, police were unable to say how close they are to making a breakthrough in the case.

Patrick was killed after she was hit by a vehicle east of the Auchenskeoch roundabout, close to Republic Bank. An autopsy confirmed she suffered multiple broken bones, a broken neck and blunt force trauma. She was found by joggers lying partially in a drain on July 4. Police believe she had been dead for more than 36 hours before she was found.
