Six days after killing and still no arrest

Today marks six days since senior counsel Dana Seetahal was brutally killed in Woodbrook and the men responsible for the death have yet to be brought to justice. 

Despite this, senior police officials told the Express yesterday that investigations were “progressing well” and the public was once again asked to exercise patience with the police as they look into all angles regarding the killing.

However, sources also noted the police have already begun looking at several key men and they expect a fruitful outcome to the investigations soon. 

Seetahal left Ma Pau casino around 11.55 p.m. on Saturday and was driving along O’Connor Street, Woodbrook, when in the vicinity of the Woodbrook Youth Facility, around 12.05 a.m. on Sunday, two vehicles pulled up alongside her Volkswagen SUV, forcing the attorney to stop.

One of the vehicles, a Nissan Wingroad, pulled in front of Seetahal, blocking the road.

It is believed the other vehicle then pulled alongside the senior counsel’s SUV and the gunmen opened fire, killing her almost instantly. 

ACP Wayne Dick, under the supervision of DCP Glenn Hackett, is continuing enquiries.
