THE BODIES of a man and woman were discovered this morning in a forested area in Brasso, Central Trinidad.
Police at the scene said they did not have the identity of the couple found in the bushes.
According to police, the bodies were discovered shortly after daybreak by an employee of an estate owner.
A party of police officers from the Homicide Division (South), Brasso Police Station and Central Division Task Force led by Senior Superintendent Johnny Abraham went to the scene. Police said the bodies of both the man and woman bore gunshot wounds to the face.
The bodies appeared to have been dumped less than 24 hours prior to being discovered, said investigators. A Toyota Corolla with license plate PBU 4473 was found on the roadway, abandoned. A suitcase was found in the trunk. Police suspect the couple might have entered Trinidad from South America recently.
Police said a tree which had fallen across the roadway, was blocking the path of the vehicle. The bodies were removed to the Forensic Sciences Centre.
