A Post Mortem Examination (PME) performed on the body of 37-year-old Paulette Wade has revealed that she died from asphyxiation due to manual strangulation compounded by blunt trauma to the head.

Police Headquarters revealed that the PME was done on Tuesday at the Wismar Hospital by Dr Nehaul Singh.

Police said that three males are in custody assisting with the investigation.

Wade, who worked as a midwife at the Kwakwani Hospital, was discovered motionless on the floor of her house in Region Ten on October 26 by her 7-year-old daughter, who subsequently informed the staff at the hospital.

Wade was described as a pleasant person, who was very active in the church. She leaves to mourn her daughter and 3-year-old son.
