PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Police say a 31-year-old security guard, who was being sought in connection with sexual assault on a five-year-old child, has been found hanging in a cemetery.
They said Che Callender was wanted in connection with the sexual assault of the child after video and photographic images of the child engaging in sex acts with him were found in his cellular phone.
His body was found late Friday hanging from a length of rope attached to the branch of a mango tree in a cemetery in Princes Town, south of here.
Police believe he hanged himself knowing that the dragnet was fast closing in on him. Callender was on bail for a rape charge and was having a relationship with the child’s mother.
Last weekend, the child’s mother discovered a video of the child engaging in oral sex with Callender whom she trustingly referred to as ‘uncle’.
Callender’s cellular phone was handed over to investigators of the Police Cyber Crimes Unit who on examining the phone’s sim card contents, discovered more video and photo images of the child naked with Callender. Another video showed him over her as he tried to sexually penetrate her.
