9-y-o Girl Strangled to Death in Westmoreland, Post-mortem Confirms
A medical report revealed on Friday that the death of the nine-year-old Westmoreland student that was discovered in buses last Tuesday was caused by strangulation.
According to reports, a post-mortem on nine-year-old Kadijah Saunders revealed the shocking truth that someone had manually strangled the toddler.
Family members of the deceased, who was a grade three student at New Works Infant and Primary School in the parish, are still seeking answers to determine whether or not the child was molested. This notion became increasingly a matter of concern after the family members of Saunders discovered her partially nude.
A thirteen-year-old male student from the same school as Saunders was taken into police custody the same day as the discovery of the body, and he is expected to be charged soon.
The body was discovered at about 8:00 p.m last Tuesday after search parties tirelessly combed the community in search of Kadijah who failed to make her way home from school.
