Homicide officers are trying to
determine whether Wednesday s
double murder in Chaguanas was
a hit over a bogus cheque linked
to the sale of a car.
Police yesterday confirmed that
this was one of the theories being
explored in the murders of 23-
year-old Salisha Langtoo and 39-
year-old Clifford George, and the
shooting and chopping of 33-year-
old Kwesi Brooks and 31-year-old
Up to yesterday Brooks, a secu-
rity guard at PPL Security Services,
remained warded in a serious con-
dition at the Eric Williams Medical
Sciences Complex, while Thomas,
of East Dry River, Port-of-Spain,
was in a critical condition at the
Port-of-Spain General Hospital.
Speaking at their Lisas Gardens
home yesterday, Brook s cousin
Timothy Clarke said all four vic-
tims were shot while going to a
location in central Trinidad where
Brooks was supposed to collect
money for the sale of his Mazda
"I heard he went to sell the car
and he got a bounced cheque, so
he carried it back and he collected
$10,000 cash in hand.
"They told him to come and
meet them somewhere to get the
rest and they were on their way
there when the gunmen start
shooting at them.
"I feel it was a robbery linked
to the car," Clarke said.
Police who processed the crime
scene at the Chaguanas Cemetery
on Petersfield Main Road, St
Thomas Village, said they did not
find any money at the scene and
believe it may have been stolen.
Meanwhile, three men held in
connection with the murders were
transferred to Gasparillo Police
Station, where they are also being
investigated for other recent
offences. They are expected to be
Linking the quartet together,
Clarke said George was a part-
time taxi driver whom Brooks hired
to take himself and Langtoo to get
the money. He said George and
Thomas were close friends.
Asked if there were any other
reasons why someone would have
targeted his cousin, he said: "Not
really, he was not in any crime and
he is a working fella. He was never
on any stupidness. He is originally
from Tobago, but because he got
a work here, he stays with us."
On the other side of Lisas Gar-
dens, Langtoo s relatives were
preparing for her funeral, which
takes place today.
Her grieving mother Farisha
Mohammed said her daughter s
death happened because she was
in the wrong place at the wrong
Langtoo, who worked with
Brooks, was bludgeoned to death
with a car jack, causing skull frac-
tures and brain damage. Because
of this, Mohammed said she felt
her daughter fought with her
She said her daughter and
Brooks were liming at Grand
Bazaar during the day after Brooks
sold the car.
"I said be careful and go ahead,
because you have to go to work.
She said, Yes, Mommy, I hear you,
I love you. I kept calling her
because I felt something was going
to happen, I was getting signs,"
She said she supported the rein-
troduction of capital punishment
to deter criminals from taking lives.
Attack at Chaguanas cemetery...
Cops link bounced
cheque to killings
Kendell "Chinee" Thomas was
grabbed from a maxi-taxi on
Wednesday morning defending his
sister but could not defend himself
from his attackers.
Thomas was shot three times, twice
in the right arm. An autopsy at the
Forensic Science Centre, St James,
yesterday revealed they were defensive
He was also shot once in the head.
The bullet entered between his eye-
brows, the autopsy revealed.
After he was shot, Thomas legs
were tied with cables and a concrete
block attached to them before he was
thrown into the river that runs south
near Sixth Street, Beetham Gardens.
He was still breathing when his killers
threw him in, as the autopsy report
showed he had inhaled mud.
The body of the 24-year-old
Thomas was found in the murky
water in the canal near Sixth Street
after police received information that
he might have been dumped there on
Thursday afternoon. Police had been
searching for Thomas since early
Wednesday after receiving reports
that he was snatched.
Thomas, a passenger in a maxi-
taxi heading into Port-of-Spain, was
dragged out of it at 19th Street,
Beetham Gardens, by gunmen when
it stopped to drop off two passengers
around 1.30 am.
Thomas sister Sheena Charles, who
was also in the maxi, said her brother
was grabbed after he tried to protect
her from the bandits, one of whom
broke an arm in his bid to escape.
Charles told the Guardian her
brother and friend Anna Lyons were
in the back seat of the maxi with her
when her brother began asking the
bandits, "Wha is dah one?" She said
the men took her chain and tried to
take her brother s. Another of the
bandits ordered everyone out of the
maxi and Thomas, using his body,
protected her from being dragged out.
Charles said a man in the front seat
then told the driver to drive off and
Police have held five men, one of
whom was the 14-year-old who broke
his arm after falling out of the moving
Thomas mother Sheila Charles
said, in a telephone interview, "I wish
that the law do something very urgent
about them. Don t waste no time at
all. They deserve to be put away."
She said she was very proud of her
son who died as he defended his
"I am very, very proud of him. That
is the type of person he was. He will
do anything to help anybody," Charles
said of her firstborn son.
