ANOTHER mother is crying out for justice after her daughter was bludgeoned to death with a car jack near a cemetery in Chaguanas.
Felisha Mohammed, a mother of seven, said her 23-year-old daughter became a victm of crime on Wednesday evening.
Salisha Langtoo, a security guard, was among two people killed near a cemetery in Petersfield Road, Chaguanas. Clifford George, 39, was shot multiple times there and died at the Chaguanas Health Facility.
Langtoo’s friend, 31-year-old Kwesi Brooks, of Tobago, who was brutally chopped about the body in the incident, remains in serious condition at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope.
And a woman identified as Carlene Thomas, 31, of East Dry River, Port of Spain, was also shot in the face. She was found slumped in the back seat of a red Nissan Almera car, driven by George, parked outside the cemetery.
Police believe Langtoo, a security guard, had accompanied her friend, Brooks, to sell his car to a dealer in Chaguanas. George, a father of one, was hired to take the two home after the car was sold.
Investigators were unable to say whether Thomas had accompanied the friends or was a passenger in the car.
Langtoo’s mother said her daughter was not involved in illegal activities.
The family lives in Jennifer Street, Lisas Gardens, Couva.
Mohammed said her daughter landed a job as a security guard at the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), Point Lisas campus, a month ago.
“She was looking forward to receiving her first pay cheque this month. She told me that was for me,” she said.
Mohammed said her daughter left home on Wednesday to go to the Grand Bazaar mall with Brooks.
“I called her about 4 p.m. because she had to work the night shift. She said she was coming down and they stuck in traffic. She went with Kwesi to sell his vehicle. He received some cash and a cheque. But when he went to the bank, the cheque bounce and he called the people. The person told them to meet him in Petersfield. I believe my daughter and Kwesi were robbed and killed,” she said.
Mohammed said her daughter was wearing 14 gold rings when she left home that day. None of the jewelry was recovered.
An autopsy performed at the Forensic Science Centre in St James by Dr Valery Alexandrov found Langtoo died from blunt force trauma to the head.
Mohammed said, “We need to bring back hanging to deal with these criminals. We are losing our children. They killing our children and we are not getting any justice for this.”
Investigators have detained three men in connection with the murders.
Langtoo will be laid to rest following a funeral service this afternoon.
