A woman found dead in her Vieux Fort home died of asphyxia, a post-mortem has found. The body of Samdai Fraser, 59, was found by her husband on Monday July 20 at her house in Cedar Heights, Vieux Fort.
A post mortem examination was conducted on Wednesday July 22 on the woman’s body.
Fraser was found lying face-down in a pool of blood, with a rope around her neck and a plastic bag around her mouth and neck. Her face had apparently been slammed to the floor of her home, police officials have said.
Reports are that several items were missing from her home: two cell phones, one 32-inch TCL television, one iPad and one PlayStation 3 game console.
The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has expressed deep regret and condolences to Police Constable 779 Bryan Fraser, the son of the deceased. The RSLPF deems it fitting to rally with Officer Fraser of the Traffic Department in Castries and provide him with much needed encouragement at this very difficult time.
