The life and death of 'Dumb Dumb' the pest

A MENACE to the community of Borde Narve Village in Princes Town was how Curtis James was described by relatives and villagers.

James was one of two people killed in an alleged shoot-out with police officers on Wednesday following the robbery of Tiana’s Jewellery Store in Couva. The other person killed was Kevon Simmons, 16 of Concerned Citizens Street.

The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has since initiated an investigation into the shooting.

According to relatives the Express spoke with yesterday, James was not the “good boy” that he was made out to be by some.

A female relative, who asked not to be named, said James had a habit of stealing which began during his primary school days.

The woman said he started his life of crime stealing from immediate family, which then escalated to the wider community.

James, 20, was said to have had heart condition and a speech impediment. He did not go to therapy for his condition. The relative said despite his disabilities, some family members did try to encourage James to give up a life of crime which he promised to do.

The relative said that while James’s death was a tragic loss to the family, no one could deny that he found himself in trouble with many people.

The Susan Maynard mystery

SIX MONTHS ago, Susan Maynard took a deep breath and stepped out of her home. She had told her family she was walking to the parlour next door to buy a phone card in the shop.

Instead, she just kept walking.

That was September 4, 2018.

And as Maynard walked further and further away from her home at Charlieville, not even stopping at the store, the neighbours who saw her did not have a clue that she would be gone, maybe forever.

Maynard had been diagnosed with depression two years earlier and had been prescribed medication for her illness.

Her mother, Clarissa Jones, said that within the first hour and she did not see her come home, she knew something was wrong.

For 1.3 million people! Outfactingstanding. Poor GG doesnt know it's a holistic fight...you just cannot continue to break heads. Everyone has to get on board. Are headmasters of schools in POS & the bigger towns in TT have a zero tolerance on tardiness & poor attendance of pupils? Are traffic police having a zero tolerance on traffic infractions - are people double parking their vehicles? Parking where they shouldnt? Is the sanitation dept ticketing homeowners or businesses for discarding trash irresponsibly? Are fellas driving about in brukatucka vehicles without proper registration/stickers? Is noise pollution enforced or fellas can just drive about playing music loud from their vehicles or does Mr Ramdhin or Mr Pollard can play their music loudly past 9pm during weekdays? Tell Dr Rowdy Rowley that you cannot keep breaking people's heads everybody or department heads have to join the fight! & GG, please take some measures, tactics, approach, plan, stratagem, etc from mayor Guiliani's handbook! I'm imploring you sah. The island with the most bootyful women has to get orderly. Full stop.

Chaguanas taxi driver killed

Relatives of 37-year-old private hire (PH) driver Ian Joseph, aka “Taliban,” are calling for answers after his body was found with stab and chop wounds in a vacant lot in Longdenville, Chaguanas, on Friday evening.

Relatives at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, yesterday said Joseph was working for money to buy diapers for his infant daughter when he was confronted by three men who they believe tried to rob him.

During the confrontation, Joseph was stabbed and ran away from his car, a silver Versa, but the men chased him and caught up with him at an abandoned lot, where he died from blood loss after he tried hiding from them.

Relatives said police were called but found only his abandoned car. After two hours of searching, Joseph’s bloodied body was found by relatives who did a search of their own.

Speaking with Newsday, one relative said Joseph was well-liked and respected in the community and may have known his attackers, as he offered them a drop and seldom offered rides to strangers.

They also said his father, Henry Joseph was killed last month, but were not sure if the killings were related.

“He was very loving and kind. He would try and help others as best as he could. He never went around looking for trouble, but he would do anything to defend himself and his family,” one relative said.
