Maloney men murdered in South
Gardener stumbles across three bodies

THE bodies of three Maloney men, two of whom were brothers, were discovered by a gardener between Wednesday night and early yesterday morning off a Petrotrin oilfield road in Fyzabad ó hours after the murdered men were reported missing.

Gardener Joseph Fermin told police that about 7.45 am, he stumbled across the corpses of Roger Brereton, 27, and brothers Isa Abdullah Mohammed and Fahiym Abdullah Mohammed about 100 feet off 177 TB1 Oilfield Road, which is off Sycline Road, Fyzabad.

The bodies of the three men who were all from Maloney Gardens, bore multiple gunshot and stab wounds.

Breretonís body was identified via the police fingerprint database and his relatives were subsequently contacted. A police report stated that relatives of Brereton last saw him and the Mohammeds in a white Nissan B12 Sentra on Tuesday.

The report stated that Brereton told relatives that he and the Mohammeds had "a job to do" in Point Fortin. But according to the report, when the men did not return home, Breretonís relatives filed a report at the Maloney Police Post.

Yesterday, crime scene investigators who cordoned off the oilfield road in Fyzabad, said Breretonís body bore gunshot wounds to the shoulder, head and earlobe. He was found lying face up on the oilfield road.

The other two bodies were found a short distance apart in a garden, surrounded by bushes. One of the bodies bore gunshot wounds to the head, left armpit, left shoulder and lower back. The other, had multiple stab wounds to the neck and head.

However, investigators are yet to determine the motive behind the triple killing. Investigators have not ruled out robbery ó the car the men were travelling in was up to late yesterday still not recovered.

Police said no form of identification or wallets were found on the dead men. A wristwatch was the only piece of jewelry found on one of the bodies.

Fermin, in whose garden the bodies were discovered, told Newsday that on Tuesday night he was home when he heard about seven gunshots.

Fermin told police that about 7 pm on Wednesday, he attended a card game in the district. As he walked along the oilfield road, he stumbled upon Breretonís body lying across the road. Fermin immediately contacted the Fyzabad police.

Yesterday when Fermin was heading to his garden, he saw a manís body lying in the bushes. Fermin said he walked out the oilfield road and luckily, saw a police car approaching. PC Ramdeen and another police officer went to the scene, but according to Fermin, Ramdeen came upon a second body a short distance away in the bushes.

Visiting the scene was a party of policemen from the San Fernando Homicide Bureau and South Western Division headed by ACP Crime James Philbert, Supt Samuel Jemmot, Insp Wells, Cpl Minors and PC Ramdeen.
