Monday, January 13, 2020 - 19:15

Sev­en days since a sus­pect was held in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of three mem­bers of the Chu­niesingh fam­i­ly from Pin­to Road in Ari­ma, po­lice be­lieve that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion will soon come to an end.

Guardian Me­dia was told by po­lice sources that the 30-year-old sus­pect, who is from Pin­to Road, Ari­ma, was ar­rest­ed last Tues­day dur­ing an in­tel­li­gence-led po­lice ex­er­cise con­duct­ed by of­fi­cers of the North­ern Di­vi­sion.


The three vic­tims, Pol­ly Ann Chu­niesingh, 31, her broth­er Dami­an Chu­niesingh, 39, and their un­cle Cana­di­an cit­i­zen Randy Chu­niesingh were found tied up and dead at Getwell Av­enue, Pin­to Road in Ari­ma on Jan­u­ary 6. Au­top­sies re­vealed that they were stran­gled.

Randy, who lived in Cana­da, was in Trinidad on va­ca­tion for the Christ­mas sea­son.

Guardian Me­dia was told that there was a re­cent at­tempt on Pol­ly Ann's life where she was poi­soned and had to be hos­pi­talised.

Since she was dis­charged she was said to be stay­ing with rel­a­tives at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said the file was sent to the Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions and they are cur­rent­ly wait­ing on fur­ther in­struc­tions as to whether or not there's enough ev­i­dence to charge the sus­pect.
