• OYIN “Angel” Assing, a 20-year-old geriatric nurse, left her family’s home in Pioneer Drive, Sea Lots, on April 3 bound for her workplace in Woodbrook to return a pay cheque on which her name was misspelt.
After returning the cheque, Assing left to go shopping in downtown Port of Spain.
Attempts to contact Assing on her cellphone provide futile and relatives filed a missing person report at the Besson Street Police Station on April 4.
On that same day Assing’s body was found floating off Dhein’s Bay in Carenage with her abdomen sliced open and her intestines removed.
An autopsy concluded that Assing died as a result of “acute haemorrhagic shock due to de-cavitation injuries of the abdominal content”.
Homicide detectives are continuing investigations into Assing’s death.
