Autopsy for slain Princes Town businessman

The autopsy for slain Princes Town businessman Christopher Hosein is carded to take place today.

The procedure will be done at the Forensic Science Center in Federation Park, as officials have received the results from the COVID-19 test which was ordered on the body.

Hosein, 45, was found dead on Wednesday next to his Kia Sorento, in a dumpsite off the M1 Tasker Road, in Ste Madeleine.

His hands were bound with duct tape, and a length of rope was attached to his neck.

His body, as well as his vehicle, were burnt, in what police believe was an attempt to destroy any evidential materials.

Police said two people, a 23-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man, both from the Princes Town community, remain in police custody. They are being questioned for any knowledge they may have into Hosein’s death.

The two are both said to be unemployed and were allegedly seen with Hosein prior to his killing.

Hosein was a former member of the fire service, having spent 12 years as a fire prevention officer. He eventually left and established his own business.

Police believe that Hosein was killed in his house along St James Street, Princes Town and that his killers attempted to dispose of the body in Ste Madeleine.

A team of officers from the Southern Division and the Homicide Bureau, including Snr Supt Yusuff Gaffar, ASP Persad and Sgt Ramlogan, visited the scene.

More on this as it becomes available.
