MANDEVILLE, Manchester — THE police were up to late last night carrying out investigations into yesterday's brutal murder of a woman and her two sons in Ramble District, near Porus in this parish.

Police said the three — Nadine Carridice, 42, and her sons Jevaughn Thomas,16, and Roshane Ellis,11, — were found about 7:20 am outside of their home with stab wounds all over their bodies. The mother's body was found at the doorway to the house while her children were reportedly found at different places in the open space outside the yard.

"It's a sad day. It's a wicked act," said Damion Carridice, a relative of the deceased.

Several residents from Ramble and adjoining communities who visited the death scene were in shock as they quietly discussed the loss of three community members.

Aboutho Carridice, who said that Nadine was his only child, struggled for words as he questioned the motive for the murder of his daughter and two of his grandchildren.

A man, who was taken in by the police for questioning in connection with the three deaths, was said to be the father of three of the woman's children, including 11-year- old Ellis. However, residents said they did not believe that he was the "real perpetrator of the crime" and wanted the "true criminal" to be found as soon as possible so that justice could be served.

They claimed that the death of the three could be linked to disagreements which the deceased woman had with another man with whom she had a relationship. The killer, they claimed, may have killed the two children because they witnessed the murder of

their mother.

"The community well shake up. Whether or not is the man (in custody) justice fi done," said Marie Carridice, another relative of the deceased. She said that

she had a close relationship with Nadine and saw her for the last time Saturday afternoon. "She was very nice. No matter what she always a try fi her kids," said Marie Carridice.

Yesterday, councillor for the Porus Division Muriel Swaby said plans were in place to assist persons having domestic problems.

She said that a back section of the Porus Police Station was being upgraded to provide temporary shelter for abused children, women and men, adding that the short term housing would at least give the victims a safe place to stay overnight while police carry out investigations. She said that the first phase of the work on the project should start on Labour Day, May 23.
