'Family badly shaken by devastating news'
GRUESOME. This was the term used yesterday by Caribbean New Media Group (CNMG) chief executive officer Ken Ali to describe the possible murders of Jerome and Dale Ramsahai—the brother and cousin, respectively, of the State-owned media house's deputy and acting chairman, Liana Ramsahai.
Ali, in a post in his personal Facebook page, said the CNMG "family" was badly-shaken by the "horrific" murders.
"We have been rocked by the devastating news, we have been searching for words to express our horror and pain at the murder in the first instance, and then at the gruesome manner of the killings," Ali wrote on his Facebook page.
He added that members of the media house on Maraval Road were introduced to the Ramsahai family by Liana Ramsahai, whom he described as "a brilliant young attorney who has brought enormous intelligence, guidance, energy and warmth to our media group".
"Via Liana, we socially met her brother Jerome, an ambitious young banker, and cousin Dale, an internationally trained ICT super-achiever," Ali said.
"Each ghastly murder haunts us into expressions of shock and outrage, but when it brutally strikes as close as this, it blindsides us into trauma and terror."
Ali offered sympathies to the Ramsahai family and said, "It's an understatement to say we feel their pain."
