Trinidad and Tobago’s Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams has described the murder of 22-year-old Woman Police officer (WPC) Nyasha Joseph as barbaric and vicious.
Speaking in Tobago yesterday, he condemned the WPC’s murder and stressed that those responsible will be brought to justice.
“It has traumatized the nation and has traumatized the entire Police Service. Such a vicious, barbaric act by individuals or an individual is one which no one in this society would endorse and condone,” Williams said.
According to the Trinidad Express, Williams said the Police Service will make all efforts to bring those responsible to justice and noted a number of people have been arrested and are being questioned in connection with the murder.
Joseph went missing last Thursday and following days of unsuccessful searches for her body, fishermen on a trawler pulled up her body in the Gulf of Paria, near the mouth of the Caroni River, around 12:15pm on Wednesday.
Police say bricks were attached to her body to ensure that it sank to the bottom of the ocean. However, an autopsy yesterday proved inconclusive due to the state of decomposition of the body.
