A woman has been arrested and the hunt is on for two men for the murder of real estate agent Sylvestine “Baby” Bernard, 87, and her daughter Kathy Ann, 38.
The suspect who lives in Siparia, remained in custody assisting investigators. Police said they believe she may have information which could solve the case. Police say the suspect knew the dead women and had been a frequent visitor to their home. They suspect the woman planned her crime, inviting two men into the home where they killed mother and daughter.
Several items, money and valuable documents were reportedly removed from the death house.
The woman and daughter lived in a mansion at the corner of Gonzalez Street and SS Erin Road in De Gannes Village, Siparia. On February 28, a neighbour who went to check on them, discovered their bodies in an advanced state of decomposition. Subsequent autopsies revealed that they died because of multiple stab wounds.
