Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 8th 2014 Contents Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne
is hot on the trail of Marlon
Charles s killers.
Charles, a 36-year-old psychi-
atric nurse attached to St Ann s
Hospital, was found dead in his
vehicle near the Caroni Bird Sanc-
tuary in the early hours of October
31. He had gone missing hours ear-
lier after leaving a birthday cele-
bration with colleagues.
Alleyne first visited his relatives
at the Forensic Science Centre, St
James, where an autopsy was being
Charles s mother Sheila said she
received a call from her son s cell
phone approximately at 4.06 am
on October 31. The person, she
said, was not her son and initially
asked her if she had any money
but then hung up.
Both Alleyne and police remain
baffled over the case, as it is still
uncertain if Charles was abducted
or lured by someone he knew or
the motive behind the killing.
Alleyne and his cameraman sub-
sequently examined Charles s body
at the funeral home and aired the
footage live to show the injuries
he sustained. Charles was shot
once in the side and once behind
Alleyne followed up on some
information he received and passed
it to Sr Supt Johnny Abraham. He
said he knows Charles left work
and met up with a friend from cen-
tral and went to a bar for drinks.
Alleyne said he is also aware of a
stop they made at an ATM to with-
Alleyne is asking anyone with
information on the case to text him
In another case, Alleyne visited
and interviewed the family of mur-
der victim Indra Diaz. Diaz, 36,
was killed by a bandit at her
Madras Road, Kelly Village home
on October 29, as she and her hus-
band were having an outdoor din-
The murder weapon, a gun, was
found by investigators a few meters
from her home in an empty lot of
land next door.
Police are following up on leads
and motives and a suspect is being
looked at for questioning.
Diaz, via Facebook, had allegedly
complained indirectly of "marital
problems," her sister told Alleyne.
Alleyne, who was on the scene
of the crime, said the explanation
that bandits stormed the house
and shot her did not sit well with
him, as it was very unlikely a bandit
would throw away a murder
weapon so close to the crime scene.
The matter is currently being
investigated and anyone with infor-
mation is asked to contact police
and or Alleyne at 294-4081.
Alleyne also journeyed to Moruga
to speak to the family of motorbiker
Nigel Nicholas, who died after he
ran into a panel van which was
reversing out of a compound last
month. He died from burns and
trauma sustained about his body
in the accident.
Members of his family, close
friends and the community have
been peacefully protesting for jus-
tice in the case and Alleyne visited
to area to get an idea of what
Alleyne said he hoped a cover-
up was not in the making.
Alleyne also aired footage of a
prominent businessman being
robbed by armed bandits in a pop-
ular casino in Gasparillo.
The public is asked to visit the
Crime Watch fan page, view the
video of the robbery and to call
the Crime Watch hotlines if you
recognise any of the men so they
can held by the police.
Shumba George also visited the
set seeking help to recover money
from Kell Johnson of Tobago.
George claimed he loaned John-
son $10,000 in February 2014 to
help him offset medical bills with
an agreement that the sum would
be returned within three weeks.
On air, Alleyne called on Johnson
to contact him so the matter could
