Former Carnival Queen contestant killed!

Alisha Hunte was found stabbed to death in her home Wednesday evening.

The rain pelting down matched the somber mood as friends, family and curious neighbours gathered near the home of 22-year-old Alisha Hunte on Wednesday as news of her death spread fast. In the community of Trouya, karaoke from a nearby bar was in stark contrast to the scene just a few yards away. “Couldn’t they just turn it down a little?” one woman questioned aloud, but her comment went unnoticed by most. People stayed on the scene long after Alisha’s body was finally removed from her apartment. The music was signs of life going on as usual, even though a young woman, a former National Carnival Queen contestant was found murdered in her apartment.

In addition to her participation in the 2009 Carnival Queen Show, you may also remember her as one of the young women featured in the STAR Newspaper’s Starlet feature in 2010.

According to police reports, the 22-year-old originally from Anse La Raye was found dead in her bathroom about 5:30pm on Wednesday, May 18. Her body was discovered by her roommate with multiple stab wounds to her abdomen, neck and back area.

No motive has been established for this incident; however, one person is in custody, assisting police with investigations.

A post mortem examination will be scheduled at a later date.
