Head of the Northern Division
Task Force (NDTF), Insp Roger
Alexander, says a bounty should be
placed on the head of fugitive
Azmon Alexander, the man now
deemed to be the main suspect in
the disappearance and murders of
a Brasso Seco family.
He made the call yesterday, saying
such an incentive could help the
police capture the man who has
eluded them for the past two weeks.
During an interview on i95 FM
yesterday, Alexander said it was time
such an initiative be considered and
he was willing to speak to acting
Commissioner of Police, Stephen
Williams to bring his plan to fruition.
Alexander escaped from police
custody from the Mayaro Magistrates
Court on January 31 after he
appeared on charges of kidnapping
and robbery and was reportedly hid-
ing out in the Paria district.
On Monday, police said Alexander,
alias "Pappi" and "Apalon," of Bye-
Pass Road, Arima, was "a person of
interest" in the disappearance of the
family and the deaths of two mem-
bers and another man who went
missing two days after the family
was reportedly abducted.
On October 26, Irma Rampersad,
49, and her daughters Felicia Gon-
zales, 17, a student of Malabar Sec-
ondary School, and Jenelle Gonzales,
19, and her 14-month-old grand-
daughter Shania Amoroso were
abducted from their Brasso Seco
The following day they were
reported missing by Felix Martinez,
who said he awoke to find a kitchen
window broken and the women and
Two days later Martinez went
missing but was believed to have
been hunting. Martinez body was
found along with that of baby Shania
wrapped in a sleeping bag last Sat-
urday. An autopsy on their remains
on Tuesday revealed Martinez was
strangled. The autopsy on Shania
was inconclusive because of the
advanced state of decomposition.
Yesterday, Alexander said they
should consider offering a bounty
on his head in order to help facilitate
He added: "As far as I am con-
cerned he is the most wanted in
T&T and I intend to approach the
commissioner and ask that a bounty
be placed on him so that persons
would be willing to give information
on him whether he appears or he
comes in any location in T&T.
"We cannot have an individual
like that roaming the streets. There
are persons involved in this as young
as 14 months old.
"Knowing the commissioner as I
do, I think he will have no problem
in considering it.
"We need this individual, because
he could enter another community
and do the same thing. Until this
individual is caught I don t think
anyone is safe in this country."

attempt yesterday after learn-

However, he only broke his
leg and several ribs, a hospital
official told the T&T Guardian.
The man was taken to the
emergency department of the
hospital and was "acting up"
before being taken to Medical
Ward 4. While there, he
climbed the railings around
2.30 pm and jumped, falling
sideways onto the grass below.
He was picked up and again
taken to the emergency depart-

injuries were not life threaten-

On Tuesday, Rampersad's body
was found in the forest off Paria
Mt Bleu Road, Brasso Seco.
An autopsy yesterday revealed
she too had been strangled. Family
members identified her body from
the clothing she was wearing but
DNA samples will be sent for
confirmation. Rampersad's body
was found three days after her
granddaughter and Martinez.
Yesterday, the search for
Rampersad's two missing
daughters ended unsuccessfully at
Alexander said during the
interview that people in this
country liked money, adding he
would support the lure of money
for helpful information.
"I think in this country it is time
for that type of intervention.
People like money, and it is
Christmas, so if is money they like,
let us present money for them for
the information, once it is good
information that could bring
persons before the court.
"I will support something like
that because in this world nobody
wants to do something for
