Women found dead in South Road house
The police are investigating an alleged double murder, which occurred sometime last night or early this morning at South and Albert Streets, Georgetown.
Details surrounding the murders are unclear at this time, however News Room was reliably informed that the bodies of 88-year-old Constance Fraser and 77-year-old Phylis Caesar were found bound and gagged in their home, which is located next to Ram’s pharmacy. The two women are said to be related.
Residents said that the two have been living there for some 50 years. Family members and investigators are currently at the scene. A church member told News Room that he last spoke with the two women on Sunday at the Full Gospel Assembly Church, located at South Road.
According to information reaching News Room, Phylis was the caretaker of the church, which is located just over the road from her house; she was responsible for disarming the security system and opening the building.
However, upon arrival at the church around 8:10hrs, a Church member noticed that the building was not opened and went to call on Phylis but there was no answer.
The man then checked the private school where she worked but was surprised when the students too were locked out. He returned to the Phylis’ home and noticed that the door to the verandah was locked but a window was opened.
The man then used a ladder and climbed into the verandah; when he pulled the curtains, he saw the bodies and observed that the place was ransacked.
