Mystar: Cops working hard to solve case

Just over a month has passed since senior counsel Dana Seetahal was killed but the police admitted yesterday that no one has been arrested for her death.

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) however wanted to assure the public that investigators are continuing to work assiduously towards solving the case.

This was the message given by public information officer for the TTPS Insp Wayne Mystar, during yesterday’s weekly news briefing at the police administration building in Port of Spain.

“The police continue to work assiduously towards the solving of this crime and as soon as we have meaningful updates, the media and the public will be apprised,” Mystar said.

Seetahal, 58, was killed by unknown gunmen on May 4, while driving along O’Connor Street, Woodbrook.

Just moments before, she had left the Ma Pau Casino and was making her way to her home at One Woodbrook Place. Upon reaching the vicinity of the Woodbrook Youth Facility, it is believed her vehicle was blocked by another car, following which she was repeatedly shot by her attackers.

Four days later her body was cremated after a funeral service at the Aramalaya Presbyterian Church in Tunapuna.

A mural has since been erected along the corner of the northern wall of the Woodbrook Youth Facility as a testament that, although the senior counsel is gone, she will never be forgotten.
