A prospective Special Reserve
Police (SRP) recruit was one of
two men who were murdered in
Morvant and Laventille between
Monday night and yesterday
Their deaths took the murder
toll to 168.
In the latest incident, around
7.30 am yesterday Ryan McIntosh,
26, of Trou Macaque Road, Laven-
tille, was shot dead in Morvant.
According to police reports,
McIntosh, a father of two, was
walking on Celestine Drive in Mor-
vant when residents heard a volley
When they checked they found
McIntosh lying unconscious at the
side of the road. He had been shot
several times in the chest.
Police arrived on the scene
shortly after and took McIntosh
to the Port-of-Spain General Hos-
pital, where he was pronounced
dead on arrival.
Officers of the North Eastern
Division Task Force conducted a
search of the area for McIntosh s
attacker, but they were unsuccess-
ful.Investigators said McIntosh
applied to be an SRP, last year,
and he recently passed an exam-
ination for entry into the service.
McIntosh was expected to be
sworn in as an SRP later this
month, police said.
Homicide detectives have not
established a motive for his murder.
Meanwhile, almost eight hours
before McIntosh s murder, 22-year-
old Tyrone Porter was shot dead
near his Laventille, home.
Police said that around 11.30
pm, Porter, of Mentor Alley, was
walking in a track near his home
when he was ambushed by a gun-
Porter attempted to run away
but was shot several times.
His family and neighbours took
him to hospital where he died
almost four hours later while
undergoing emergency surgery.
Homicide detectives said Porter
was well known to police and he
was a suspected gang member.
ASP Ajith Persad, Insp Sahadeo
Singh and Sgt Rene Grant are
probing Porter s murder.

Police and army officers
increased their rescue teams
numbers as they combed the
Northern Range, looking for
Seenath, 47, who went missing
on Saturday during a hike near
Rio Seco Falls.
Relatives of the missing woman
also joined the search yesterday.
Police reports say Seenath, of
Chapel Street, Princes Town, went
with a group of 40 people on an
excursion to Salybia beach on Sat-
When they arrived, 13 of the 40
decided to hike to Rio Seco falls.
After the brief hike to the falls
the group left and returned to the
beach. Around 4.30 pm they
realised Seenath was missing and
a search was immediately
The group reported the matter
at Matura Police Station and a
search was launched for the miss-
Civil Military Affairs officer of
the Defence Force Major Al
Alexander confirmed that the
search for Seenath resumed at 6.30
am yesterday and more personnel
were called out to join in the
He said the First Engineer Bat-
talion of T&T Regiment, working
alongside police from Matura and
Forestry officers, combed the area.
"We are hoping to be success-
ful," Alexander said.
Conservator of Forests Johnny
Seepersad has ordered a report into
the incident involving Seenath,
since the area she disappeared in
is considered part of the Matura
National Park, which is a protected
Seepersad told the T&T
Guardian it is open to the public
"If you want to go hiking you
do not need to get permission...It
is free to the entire population if
you want to go there," he said.
Seepersad said private hiking
groups go to the area on tours and
sometimes villagers are paid to
take small parties of hikers on the
He explained that the group that
Seenath went to Salybia with on
Saturday is not a registered hiking
"It looks like a group organised
an excursion to the falls and on
their way back she missed the trail
and this happened," he said.
Seepersad issued a word of
advice to those who want to go
hiking: "Please contact Forestry
for advice and guidance on these
hikes and we will assist as much
as we can to avoid such calamites
An official from a local hiking
enthusiast group, Hike Seekers, in
an interview yesterday, said the
trail that Seenath went on is one
of the popular and easier natural
trails because it is clearly marked.
The official said it takes 35 min-
utes to an hour to get to the falls
from the beach, depending on an
individual s fitness level.
