Central cops probe beating death of girl, 2
Homicide detectives are investigating the murder of a toddler they suspect died after a severe beating on Monday. Two-year-old Kimora Roopnarine died at the Chaguanas Health Facility hours after an attendant at a daycare near her Phyllis Street, Enterprise, Chaguanas home, found that she had difficulty breathing and called a male relative to collect her.
According to reports, the child’s mother took her to the daycare around 7.15 am on Monday and a close male relative was called to pick her up later that day after she was found in difficulty. The man told police that Kimora was crying when he put her on the bed and upon checking 20 minutes later, he found her unconscious on the floor. She was taken to the health centre where police said an initial examination revealed she had no marks of violence on her body.
However, an autopsy done by pathologist Hughvon des Vignes at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, yesterday, revealed that Kimora died as a result of blunt force trauma to the chest, which broke two of her ribs. No one was arrested up to late yesterday, but police were interviewing several people. WPC Paulette Elcock and Sgt Poolaram of the Chaguanas police are investigating.
