Minutes after residents of Walcott
Lane, Enterprise, found the battered,
nude body of one of their neighbours
in a track yesterday, they saw another
neighbour eating a piece of bake and
pumpkin while trying to wash blood
off his clothes.
The residents cornered the man and
although he put up a struggle, he was
eventually subdued and handed over to
the police. The dead body was identified
as that of Pamela Balgobin, 37.
Balgobin and the suspect, now in
police custody, grew up in Walcott Lane
When the T&T Guardian visited the
scene yesterday, Balgobin s siblings,
Geeta Ragoobar, 56, and Vashti
Ramkissoon, expressed shock over their
younger sister s death. Balgobin had four
children, ages 21, 19, 17 and 15. She was
also the grandmother of a four-year-
Ragoobar said she was told her sister
was returning home when a man
snatched money from her hand and she
"Someone saw it and they said he
snatched her money from her hand and
she began arguing with him to get it
back," she said.
"Then a little while after a next neigh-
bour was passing through the track and
saw a body...he came and told my
nephew and niece but when they got
there they realised it was her." Balgobin s
head and face were bashed in and her
throat had been slit.
Her tattered tiger-striped pants and
top were strewn next to her body.
"My niece say she couldn t even make
out that it was her, her entire face was
gone. Is only when she watched the
body good, then she realised and she
run home to get a sheet to cover her
She said her sister s alleged attacker
was seen about 30 feet away from her
body, washing blood off his clothing.
"They noticed him by the pipe in the
savannah washing blood off his clothes.
When they went up to him he was eating
the bake and pumpkin and laughing
and talking. They asked him what hap-
pened and he said he didn t do anything,
but the fellas hold him and tell him he
not leaving till the police come."
Officers of the Chaguanas Police Sta-
tion responded to the scene and took
the man into custody. Crime Scene Unit
investigators removed a piece of wood
and the base of a blender from the scene
yesterday. Balgobin lived in a small
wooden house opposite Ramkissoon.
She recalled seeing her sister around 11
pm on Monday.
"I was watching the US elections and
she came for something to eat. I saw
my son give her a sandwich and a cup
of tea and she left," Ramkissoon said.
"She left and went home...that was
the last I saw of her." She described her
sister as cool and quiet.
"She never interfere with anyone, if
you ask her to do anything for you she
would do it willingly."
One of Balgobin s sons, Justin, 19,
said he last saw his mother on Mon-
"She came up by us, eat and lime
and then told me she was going by my
sister to see her grandchild," Justin said.
He said the family of the man held
for the incident and his family got along
well and he had no idea why the man
would want to harm his mother.
"All of them grew up together, I don t
know what happen to him that he do
those things, my mother didn t deserve
that. I am angry and hurting right now."
Her killing has taken the murder tally
to 398 for the year.

Following the killing of his mother outside her
church, the South East Port-of-Spain Seventh
Day Adventist Church located at Piccadilly Street,
in East Port-of-Spain, the police officer and his
family have been placed in protective custody.
"Right now he is not doing too well because
he was threatened, he reported it, and now we
have reason to believe that police were involved
and he is being protected by police so he is not
doing well at all," one officer said.
According to police sources, the police officer
was just reporting for duty at the Firearm Inter-
diction Unit based at the Besson Street Police
Station when he responded to a report of a shoot-
