CrimeWatch host Ian Alleyne this week
continued to investigate the death of Frank
"Yellows" Daniel, who went missing for
some time before his body was discovered
by police on February 15, 2015.
Daniel s badly decomposed body was found
along Factory Road, Chaguanas.
Police reportedly closed the case after
autopsies were done and it was concluded
there was no foul play in Daniel s death.
However, this ruling did not sit well with
Alleyne, as his investigations led him to believe
Alleyne called on the services of Professor
Hubert Daisley for a third autopsy to be con-
ducted independently and the findings were
startling as the CrimeWatch host aired the
very graphic but detailed video of the autopsy
for the nation to see.
Daisley found defensive wounds about
Daniel s hands and arms and bruises about
the body, but the pinnacle proved to be evi-
dence suggesting that the death was due to
It was concluded that there was indeed
foul play and that Daniel clearly was involved
in a struggle which led to his death, with his
body being dumped in the Factory Road area
Alleyne has called upon senior police to
dig deeper into the case. He has also vowed
to get justice for the Daniel family as he cannot
understand the findings of the first two autop-
Alleyne also made startling discoveries dur-
ing his investigation into the death of 21-
year-old Kyshon Bell, of Duncan Street, Port-
of-Spain, who was allegedly stabbed several
times by security officials attached to a popular
mas band in Woodbrook on Carnival Tuesday.
Relatives and friends appeared on Crime-
Watch to give an account of the matter and
Alleyne later visited the area in Woodbrook
where the stabbing took place. He was sur-
prised to see that a number of properties
along the route where the incident took place
had surveillance cameras installed. There were
government-installed CCTV cameras as well.
Alleyne called on acting Commissioner of
Police Stephen Williams to check into the
matter as there was clearly a cover-up.
Noting that it seemed poor people s calls
for justice were not heard, Alleyne vowed to
ensure Bell s killers are caught and prosecuted.
He said he would seek out the footage and
air it if nothing was done.
Also, this week, a family suffered a double
tragedy when the day after they lost 17-year-
old Shivnarine Manbodh, who was killed in
an unfortunate incident at a worksite in Bar-
rackpore, they also lost his brother-in-law
Manbodh was crushed to death when rubble
fell on the excavator he was operating on
Wednesday. Alleyne visited the site and filmed
the scene where the boy was killed.
Singh, the estranged husband of Manbodh s
sister, died of a heart attack the following

Third autopsy on man found in Chaguanas:
A man broke into Rhonda's Bar in Princes Town on Carnival Tuesday at
approximately 1.30 am with a sledge hammer.
The man stole over $16,000 in cash and other items.
Alleyne was able to get footage which he aired and he is now asking the
public to visit his Facebook page to assist in locating the criminal.
Alleyne was also on the scene at the More Money Pawn Shop on Henry
Street, Port-of-Spain, on Monday, after thieves broke into the store over
The thieves got away with over $15 million worth of jewelry and cash,
which was described as the biggest heist in Port-of-Spain in over 20
Alleyne aired the footage of his visit and it was evident that this heist
was well-planned, as jack hammers or other tools were used to gain
access through the concrete ceiling. His investigation revealed three
men were seen on the roof of the building hours before the break-in.
Irate customers gathered outside the Pawn Shop demanding answers
on Thursday. The owners released a statement saying they would repay
90 per cent of the lost items' value.
Police are still investigating the break-in and the public is kindly asked to
contact Alleyne on Whatsapp at 294-4081 with any helpful information.
