Homicide detectives are investigating the
murder of a toddler they suspect died after
a severe beating on Monday.
Two-year-old Kimora Roopnarine died at
the Chaguanas Health Facility hours after an
attendant at a daycare near her Phyllis Street,
Enterprise, Chaguanas home, found that she
had difficulty breathing and called a male rel-
ative to collect her.
According to reports, the child s mother
took her to the daycare around 7.15 am on
Monday and a close male relative was called
to pick her up later that day after she was
found in difficulty.
The man told police that Kimora was crying
when he put her on the bed and upon checking
20 minutes later, he found her unconscious
on the floor.
She was taken to the health centre where
police said an initial examination revealed she
had no marks of violence on her body.
However, an autopsy done by pathologist
Hughvon des Vignes at the Forensic Science
Centre, St James, yesterday, revealed that
Kimora died as a result of blunt force trauma
to the chest, which broke two of her ribs.
No one was arrested up to late yesterday,
but police were interviewing several people.
WPC Paulette Elcock and Sgt Poolaram of
the Chaguanas police are investigating.
