Dana Seetahal, SC was assassinated around 12:05 a.m. while driving through Woodbrook.
Ms Seetahal was just minutes away from her One Woodbrook Place home when she was gunned down in Woodbrook just after midnight this morning.
Concerned residents of the area reported hearing an “explosion” of shots and called the police who arrived 15 minutes after the shooting to find Ms Seetahal’s lifeless body slumped over the driver’s wheel, her foot still on the brake pedal.
Police reports confirm that upon reaching the Hamilton-Holder St., a Nissan Wingroad drove ahead of her Volkswagon SUV and then pulled in front of her, blocking her access as another vehicle, described as a panel van pulled alongside of her and shots were fired directly at her from the occupants of that vehicle.
The bullets struck her in the head and about her body. Both vehicles thereafter fled the scene.
Martin Daly, SC caustically noted on CCN TV6’s early morning coverage with Dominic Kallipersad that Trinidadians have a history of talk without action. He observed that we had become somewhat inured to the horrendous nature of the crimes being committed, that we were content to talk for a few days and then forget thereafter as was the case with the coke haul in the juice cans scandal. He affirmed his position that if authorities are serious about dealing effectively with the crime then they would fund social development programmes which would deal with the cause of the crime.
