Babysitter Helen Boodoo has
denied any mishap or accident to
baby Rebecca while the child was
in her care at her home in March.
According to an autopsy report,
baby Rebecca, six months old, died
from blunt cranial trauma to the left
side of the head. The autospy was
performed by forensic pathologist
Dr Hughvon Des Vignes at the
Forensic Science Centre.
Speaking to the T&T Guardian on
Monday after appearing on CNC3 s
Crime Watch programme with host
Ian Alleyne, baby Rebecca s mother,
Wendy Seignoret, 42, of Brazil Vil-
lage, said on March 14, babysitter
Helen Boodoo asked her for baby
Rebecca for a few hours.
"My baby was alive and healthy
when I allowed her to go spend time
with the babysitter, who lives just a
few houses away from by me. It was
a Saturday, a day when I don t send
my baby by the babysitter but I still
allowed her to take my baby,"
She added that at about 7.30 pm
she telephoned Boodoo to ask her
to bring the baby, "When I called
her to ask her why she did not bring
the baby home yet she said she was
sleeping. I told her no, no, I want
my baby home now, to bring her
now, which she did."
Seignoret said later on that night
while giving her baby a bottle of
milk, Rebecca began to vomit and
then gasp for breath.
Rebecca was subsequently taken
to the Arima Health Facility.
"From there they rushed her to
the hospital where they took her in
for emergency surgery. I was ques-
tioned as to what happened to the
baby but I, myself, did not know. I
was told that there was blood in the
brain. By that time, my baby was
already brain dead and blind,"
When T&T Guardian contacted
Boodoo for comment, Boodoo stayed
silent on the phone for a few minutes
before saying, "There was nothing.
Nothing happened to the baby while
here. I already gave two statements
to the police and that is the God s
Pressed further as to if she was
certain she didn t have anything
more to say about Rebecca, Boodoo
replied, "No. Thanks for calling me."
Seignoret said since the incident
her family had not been doing at all
well. "All I want is closure to this
entire situation. I don t know what
happened to my baby. I want
answers," Seignoret said.
Seignoret said she had tried several
times to contact investigating officer
Cpl Campbell of the Arouca Homi-
cide Bureau but he had matters to
attend to in court.
