A Post Mortem Examination (PME) conducted on the 11-year-old girl, who was killed along with her mother by a Cuban national, has found that she was sexually active.

Government Pathologist Dr. Nehaul Singh conducted the PME at the Georgetown Public Hospital Mortuary.

“The doctor reported that the juvenile was sexually active, and he cannot determine whether she was raped.” Police had said that blood was seen on the girl’s private part.

The PME also found that 34-year-old Tara Krishnaran died from blunt trauma to the head while her daughter’s cause of death was given as an incised wound to the neck and blunt trauma to the head. The bodies were handed over to the relatives for burial.

This revelation comes a few hours after Joel Rodriguez, also known as Yoel Rodriguez Barientos, confessed to killing the duo.

This publication had reported that the woman’s father, who also lives at the same address, told investigators that the couple had an argument at about 17:30 hrs on Christmas Day, and a fight ensued between them.
The man said that he retired to bed, given that the couple would usually fight. At about 08:00 hrs on Boxing Day, he woke up and did not check on the woman and her child since she typically took her along to work.

However, at about 20:30hrs, the father realised that he was locked inside the house and decided to check his daughter’s room and made the gruesome discovery.

He saw his daughter and granddaughter lying motionless on a bed and ground, respectively.

Police said that Tara was discovered with wounds to the head, left side temple, and left side of the face, while the child had a wound about six inches in length to her neck and what appeared to be blood on her private parts.

After committing the heinous crime, the Cuban national fled the scene but was later caught in Amelia’s Ward, Linden, on Sunday.
