A school bus driver who was questioned in the death of a three-year-old boy appears to have gone into hiding, contrary to reports that officers went to charge the woman yesterday.
Investigators told Guardian Media that the woman from Central Trinidad has left home and they have no information of her whereabouts.
Officers said they went to speak with the woman yesterday in order to clarify certain matters related to the investigation.
However they have no instructions just yet to charge her with any offence.
It was reported yesterday by some media houses that the woman was charged and expected to appear in court on Friday. However, Guardian Media was told this was inaccurate.
Officers say they are concerned about the bus driver’s well-being since she fell ill after the child’s death and are worried about her mental health.
Sources have told Guardian Media that the woman fled the country, however, investigators say they do not have such information, at least not yet.
Three-year-old Isaiah Hazel died as a result of hyperthermia after falling asleep on the school bus on his way to school. His body was found hours later when the driver returned to pick up children from school.
