Police Investigating Christmas Day Murder of Mother and Daughter


GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Dec. 27, CMC – The police have launched a probe following the brutal murder of a mother and daughter on Christmas Day.

The police report that the bodies of  Tara Krishram, 34 and her 11-year-old daughter were found in a bedroom in the house late Friday.

It’s reported that the two appeared to have been beaten and slashed to death.

According to the police, a Cuban national, identified as Joel Rodrigues – the lover of the 34 year old woman, who lived in the same house, is the main suspect.

The two, were reportedly overheard in an argument on Christmas night in the home after Krishram returned from visiting a relative.

The bodies were found by her father who lives in the same house.

The elderly man told investigators that he last saw his daughter’s Cuban boyfriend on Christmas night, moments after hearing the two in an argument in the backroom of the house.

The father reportedly spent most of Saturday sleeping and later in the day  he went to his daughter’s room and it was then that the bodies of his daughter and granddaughter were discovered.

An alarm was raised  and when the police arrived, he told them that his daughter and granddaughter were out and therefore did not check on them.

A post-mortem examination is expected to be carried out on both bodies this week. – CMC
