Police officer detained in kidnapping, murder of businessman’s son

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Friday May 2, 2014, CMC – A Trinidad and Tobago police officer with four years service is among two men detained by law enforcement authorities in the death of a 29-year-old son of a businessman, whose charred remains were found in a forested area in March.

Police said that the two suspects would be placed on identification parades.

Trinidad police had initially questioned six people, including three women, after the body of Devindra Siew­dass was found beneath a burning heap of tyres a few days after he was kidnapped on March 20.

His captors had demanded a two million dollar (One TT dollar = US$0.16 cents) ransom. His vehicle had been found abandoned in Claxton Bay south east of here.

The investigators said they had also recovered a bloo­dy mattress and cutlass from an unfinished house and a pair of sunglasses believed to belong to the victim.

Last month, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) testing identified Siewdass’ charred remains.
