Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : June 2nd 2013 Contents "It is just a tragic recurrence. I lost
my husband. He was murdered outside
our house. Nothing came out of it. Abi-
gail was in an accident. And 40 days
after the accident, Angel was murdered.
I am recovering. But the hurt is inside.
People felt because I didn t bawl like
a madwoman I was not missing Angel,
but I was grieving. When I saw what
happened to Sunshine, I felt it for her
parents. I felt like it was happening to
On May 8, the decomposed corpse
of Sunshine Alfred, 17, of Orchid Gar-
dens, Pleasantville, was found by Ronnie
Mooliesingh around 6.20 pm at Cedar
Hill, Princes Town. An autopsy con-
ducted at the Forensic Science Centre,
St James, by pathologist Dr Valerie
Alexandrov stated Alfred was knocked
unconscious with a metal object before
being stabbed to death.
As the family anxiously awaited news
about Angel, her mother said she was
prepared for the worst. "I knew some-
thing was wrong. She would answer
her cell phone. When they came and
told me to come and identify the body,
I could not believe the state of the body.
Before we got there someone had taken
a photo and put it on the Internet. It
was already circulating."
Assing said her faith in God had made
the difference. "If I didn t know Christ,
think where I would be today. I had
someone to hold on to and stand in
the gap. Imagine if you go out and kill
someone and then their family kills
another member of your family. It
would be a vicious cycle of more sense-
less murders. I would advise parents
who have lost their children in tragic
circumstances to put their faith in God.
Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord, I
Asked if she ever dreamt Angel, she
said: "I just closed my eyes one day, I
was just relaxing...not sleeping, and I
got a vision of her sitting on a brick
and feeding white pigeons."
Asked about Abigail, she said: "She
lives at her home in Sea Lots. She is
coming along. Her recovery is due to
the prayers. Ryan Rampersad (another
accident victim) is said to be 98 per
Assing said Sea Lots residents were
appalled at the callous behaviour of
the police. "They fired two rubber bul-
lets at my son Abiel. They wanted to
keep me away from Abigail. It caused
emotions to run high. Shakira was still
breathing. And the police were saying
"leave them, let them die."
Asked if she felt Sea Lots residents
should be relocated, she said: "If they
relocate them the problems still
remains. Sea Lots has a lot of unity.
They need to talk to the people and
see what their needs are. It is not just
about putting a traffic light. Too much
negative stigma is associated with Sea
To date, Assing said she has not got-
ten any word from the Besson Police
Station about who could have killed
her child. She said the experience was
similar to that of her late husband. On
Tuesday, when contacted, an officer at
Besson Police Station said Homicide
Bureau Region 1 was dealing with it.
When contacted, an officer at the
Homicide Bureau said there was no
further update or new leads relative to
Angel s homicide.
