Autopsy scheduled for woman found dead in Charlieville

The death of Dominican Republic national Esther Echavarria Rodriguez, 26, has left residents of the Charlieville community reeling.

The body of the 26-year-old was discovered by a passer-by who was walking along the John Peters walkover around 10:30pm on Monday.

She appeared to have been stabbed several times.

An autopsy is expected to take place today at the Forensic Science Center in St James to determine the official cause of death.

Investigators said Rodriguez’s passport showed she had a work visa for Aruba.

Residents told police that Rodriguez was known to be working at a guest house in Chaguanas.

They said that her death had left them in shock, as the area was not known for such serious crimes.

They are calling on the police to find those responsible for the heinous crime.
