Mother loses second son to killers

The moth­er of se­cu­ri­ty of­fi­cer Ri­car­do Dixon, 22, was on Thursday lost for words as she tried to come to terms with los­ing her sec­ond son in six years to vi­o­lence.

Dixon left home at 5.20 am to pick up his first day of du­ties at Heller Se­cu­ri­ty Ser­vices but was shot dead mo­ments lat­er.

His moth­er, Camille Taitt, 40, was in a state of shock and dis­be­lief when she saw the body of her son, ful­ly clad in his se­cu­ri­ty uni­form, ly­ing on the road­way at Xeres Road in Carlsen Field.

Dixon was shot six times but was able to tell a passer­by what hap­pened to him min­utes be­fore he suc­cumbed to his in­juries at the scene.

Po­lice found five spent .40 cal­i­bre shells on the ground near his body. Dixon was the fa­ther of a one-year-old girl.
On May 26, 2013, Dixon’s old­er broth­er, Re­nal­do, who was 14 years at the time and a Form Three pupil, was stabbed three times and his wrist slit by a 16-year-old Form Five pupil of the said school. At the time of that in­ci­dent, Re­nal­do and a school­girl were sit­ting on a bench at about 10 am when the oth­er boy at­tacked him.

Dixon’s mur­der was record­ed as the 238th for the year so far.

To me, the JLP of Jamaica, is the only party in the Anglophone Caribbean that is getting it...litter free capital city, getting tough on vagrancy, professional law enforcement - cops & traffic agents; service oriented govt office workers - friendly with a 'can-do' attitude. That's the only way to modernity. Mih seh suh. But, of course, when the more socialist oriented party gets in power...these policies are never sustained. So, of course, the country doesnt gain grounds, but, just regresses back to bland socishitism. For there to be physical security, there has to be a holistic approach to law enforcement - enforce the laws on the books!

Was this woman burnt to death?

A 49-year-old woman is dead following a fire in Chaguanas on Thursday night.

The victim was identified as Indira Hall of Eleanor Street, Chaguanas.

An autopsy conducted yesterday at the Forensic Science Centre in St James found that while the woman’s body had burn marks, the cause of death was as a result of smoke inhalation.

Police said at about 10 p.m. they got a call about a fire along Eleanor Street.

Upon arriving they observed appliances from the Chaguanas Fire Station battling a blaze at an apartment building.

The building had ten apartments and a store.

When the fire was contained, Hall’s body was found in a room on the southern side of her apartment. The apartment was destroyed, police said.

Police rescue two Chinese 'slaves'

TIP-OFF to the Counter-Trafficking Unit’s hotline led to the rescue of two Chinese nationals on Wednesday.

The victims, a 41-year-old man and his 42-year-old wife, were allegedly being forced to work at a Chaguanas factory against their will.

A statement from the T&T Police Service yesterday said the victims were brought to Trinidad by an 83-year-old businessman who told them they were to be employed as chefs at a restaurant in Centre Pointe Mall, Chaguanas.

But when they arrived, the couple’s passports were taken away and they were forced to work at a factory in Endeavour, Chaguanas.

The victims were also told that they would have to provide $30,000 for their passports to be returned to them, police said.

Police received a tip-off and an investigation was launched.

Robbery ruled out in Moruga double murder

POLICE have ruled out robbery as a motive in Tuesday’s double murder at Basse Terre Village, Moruga, where the victims reportedly went to meet a potential car buyer.

Police eventually found the burnt-out shells of the two cars near Moreau Road off Penal Rock Road in Moruga. The area is commonly referred to as "the teak."

Initially, it was believed that Vincent "Waxie" St Bernard, 47, and Dennison Baptiste, 34, were shot and killed for their cars.

A passerby saw the bodies of the men at about 2 pm on Tuesday off Edward Trace and contacted police.

St Bernard, a taxi-driver, worked the La Romaine/ San Fernando route and lived at Station Street in Siparia. Police said Baptiste lived at Blitz Village in Pleasantville.

A police report said the men had gone to sell a car. Baptiste took a friend's black Nissan Sunny B-13 to meet the buyer and St Bernard followed in his Nissan Almera.
