Siparia woman raped and killed

Tuesday, April 19 2005

THE search for missing Siparia primary school janitor Tarmattee Toolsie ended yesterday morning with the gruesome discovery of her decomposed body, buried under a heap of old tyres and leaves. Toolsie, 42, was the aunt of missing Siparia schoolgirl Pixie Radha Lakhan. Police believe Toolsie, of La Brea Trace, was dragged into a teak field not far from where she lived, and was then raped and chopped to death. Toolsie, who lived less than a quarter mile from where her body was found, left home for work around 5.30 am last Friday, but never made it. The woman worked as a janitor at the Penal Government Primary School.


Around 10 am yesterday, Toolsie’s uncle, Subidhan, and other relatives and friends, were searching the bushes for Toolsie when they stumbled upon the body. Police said the decomposed body, which was partially clothed, was covered with tyres and leaves, and there was a gaping wound to the chest. Her left leg was partially severed, as well as part of her right foot. Toolsie’s son, Ramdeen Beepath, 24, identified his mother by the brown skirt which was found near the body. Police say Toolsie was raped then murdered.


Toolsie’s sister, Kaloutee, said her sister had no enemies. She last spoke to Toolsie last week Wednesday and, according to Kaloutie, “She was doing well. I don’t know why this happen. These days it have too much crime,” Kaloutie sobbed. Toolsie lived alone but often stayed with Krishna Samuel, with whom she shared a common-law-relationship. Police said the family filed a missing person’s report on Sunday at the Siparia Police Station. While the police were mobilising the canine unit to search for the woman yesterday morning, they received a telephone call about the discovery of the body. Up to late yesterday no arrests had been made. Visiting the scene were police officers from the Siparia CID and San Fernando Homicide Bureau led by Snr Supt Felix Nimrod. An autopsy is expected to be performed at the Forensic Science Centre today. Investigations are continuing.
