Mom of six strangled—autopsy
Police’s suspicion that Williamsville mother Tricia Farrow was strangled to death on Saturday was confirmed by an autopsy at the Forensic Science Centre in St James yesterday.
However, investigators have to wait for the results of vaginal swabs taken from Farrow’s body to determine whether she was raped.
Meanwhile, no one has been arrested for her murder although her family is pointing fingers at a relative who was accused of raping and almost killing her six months ago.
A family member said yesterday that it was difficult for them to sleep on Monday night following the discovery of her body.
Besides her death, they said it was traumatic knowing that the person who committed to the odious crime was still roaming their village freely.
Farrow, 44, of Morne Rush, Williamsville, was found on Monday at an unoccupied house along Hill View Drive, about 50 metres from her home.
A report said when the owner went to the house around 8.50 am he saw a body on the ground and immediately went to the Gasparillo Police Station. He returned with a team of officers who found Farrow, a mother of six, lying on her back at the side of the house.
A belt was fastened around her neck and attached to the drainage pipe.
Her pants and underwear were removed. She was last seen alive by her family around 1 am Saturday, when she went outside to intervene in an argument between her brother Tyrone and another relative.
Tyrone told the T&T Guardian that after he was struck with a piece of brick he went home, leaving Farrow and the relative standing under a street light about 30 metres from where her body was later found.
Farrow’s son Kerwin Bando said six months ago, a neighbour alerted him and his father to someone screaming in the bushes.
When they checked, they found Farrow lying partially naked in the bushes gasping for breath.
It was less than 30 metres from where her body was found on Monday.
Weeks later, he said she had a confrontation with a relative and shouted out that he had raped and tried to kill her.
However, she never reported the incident to the police.
