Police patrols have been beefed up
in Bacolet, Tobago, following the
double murder of a German couple
T&T Guardian visited Bacolet Cres-
cent yesterday and was met with
locked houses and very few persons,
including construction workers, who
chose to say anything about the inci-
dent or the couple themselves.
Herbertus, 71, and his wife, Birgid
Keil, 74, were found dead along Min-
ister’s Bay, Bacolet, last Saturday. They
were chopped to death.
Just a few metres away from the
sea view white house, owned by the
Keils for over the past decade, was a
short dead-end road leading to Min-
A few inmates from the Tobago
prison were seen clearing overgrown
bushes. The inmates were under
supervision from several prisons offi-
A couple, house-hunting in the area,
said they were very concerned after
hearing the gruesome and sad news
of the German couple’s murder.
About four houses from the Keils’
house was a home last occupied by
UK couple Peter Green and his wife,
In August, 2009, they were chopped
and left for dead in the house. They
miraculously survived and have
returned to the UK to live.
A resident, who has been living
there for the past two years said
although most of the houses in the
area were vacation homes for tourists,
the few residing there permanently
“When they are home they are
locked indoors. You don’t see them
much, especially after the Greens’
attack and now this horrible one.”
A construction worker said he has
been working in the area for many
years and said since the recent mur-
ders he had noticed a heavy police
“The police come in here very reg-
ular, almost every morning and night
so the people feel more safe. The res-
idents are living in here but we will
see how it goes.”
Anyone with information regarding
the Kiels’ murders can call either of
the two hotline 635-1649 or 639-2515.
A $100,000 reward is being offered
for information which can lead to an
arrest and conviction.
Beetham and Sea Lots residents

The residents were employed in
the Port-of-Spain Outfall Clean-
up Project which started on Sep-
tember 5 and cost $14 million.
They were speaking at an appre-
ciation ceremony at the Radisson
Hotel, Wrightson Road, Port-of-
Two of the workers—Kareem
Marselle and Elijah Mitchell—asked
the minister for employment to
Marselle said “sustainable devel-
opment” was necessary for the
Mitchell said the residents worked
hard to clean the drains and even
found an engine block and ply
boards among the debris.
Singh assured the workers there
would be work available.
He said they removed 570,000
cubic metres of silt at a depth of
six metres. This was dredged away
from an area known as The Cove.
The work was done through the
collaboration of the Water and Sew-
erage Authority (WASA), the Port-
of-Spain Corporation and the min-
However, Singh said what the
workers did was an intermediate
solution and a permanent solution
was necessary to rid the flooding
problem in Port-of-Spain.
He said one project in the making
would be with Clear Water Gardens
which would be located opposite
Singh said the water which ran
out of the treatment plant was clean
and could be reused.
“This will represent a gateway to
Port-of-Spain that will be sustained
by the WASA and provide an oppor-
tunity for the water to be utilised.
“It is one step away from approval
and when they speak it will bring
sustainable employment for resi-
dents in that area,” he said.
Singh said in January work would
continue with the underground
“This is the responsibility of the
corporation because we cannot
allow the flooding to continue and
those who are here will continue to
be employed,” he added.
He said a transmission main
would be removed on Monday and
soon landscaping for Clear Water
Gardens would start.
“People who work hard must be
given the chance for sustainable
employment,” he added.
