Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : September 5th 2015 Contents An intense investigation by
CNC3 s Crime Watch host Ian
Alleyne this week revealed that
there might have been more than
meets the eye in the killing of 43-
year-old Sunil Rampersad.
Alleyne said he received informa-
tion that led him to uncover much
more than what was already reported
in relation to Rampersad's murder.
His investigation into the murder
of Rampersad on August 29 revealed
that one man may have key infor-
mation to the police investigation
into the incident.
Rampersad was found dead in a
drain at John Peter's Road in Char-
lieville, Chaguanas. He had been
stabbed several times about the body.
Alleyne visited Guide's Funeral
Home in Couva where he thoroughly
examined the labourer's body, and
subsequently showed the entire
footage on Thursday's programme.
The Crime Watch host counted 15
stab wounds about the victim's body.
Appearing on the programme this
week were Rampersad's wife and
ex-wife, who both spoke of their
relationships with him.
Alleyne said during his investiga-
tions he discovered a confession from
a man about his love for a close
female relative of Rampersad.
The man, who identified himself
only as "Vijay," claimed he was will-
ing to do anything to get the woman
Rampersad's relatives told Alleyne
that he (Rampersad) had asked them
to make sure they attended his wake
and funeral just a mere four days
before he was killed.
Alleyne said he believed this meant
that Rampersad might have been
threatened and knew his attacker/s.
The Crime Watch host has now
launched a search for "Vijay," who
is reportedly from Felicity, since he
believes he can assist him and the
police in their investigations into the

Strange twist in
Last week Alleyne highlighted
the missing person case of 79-
year-old Mahadaye Nanan, of
Henry Street, Caroni Savannah
Road, Charlieville, Chaguanas.
Nanan's granddaughter told
Alleyne that Nanan had gone
missing on August 27.
After the granddaughter's
appearance on the show last week
Friday (August 28) when she made
an appeal to Alleyne and the public
to help find her grandmother, the
elderly woman was found dead
behind her home the following day.
According to an autopsy Nanan
died of a heart attack.
Alleyne this week also made a
breakthrough in the murders of
Jason "Cardo" Lightfoot and Andy
"Chinee" Maharaj, who were killed
on Independence Day.
Alleyne said the two friends
were killed after some drugs
allegedly went missing.
According to police reports, at
about 6.45 am on Monday officers
from the Central Division received
information about two bodies lying
at the side of the road at Mc Bean,
When the officers investigated
they found Lightfoot and Maharaj,
who were reported missing since
last week Friday, dead on the
roadside. Their hands and feet
were tied up and they were
believed to have been killed
Alleyne has launched an
investigation into the double
murder and is asking anyone with
information to contact him at 294-
Sunil Rampersad was found stabbed
to death. An autopsy later showed
he had been stabbed 15 times.
