Crabwood Creek farmer stabbed to death during home invasion
Bandits broke into the Lot 22 Grant 1655 Crabwood Creek house of 59-year-old Deoprakash “William” Lallbachan and stabbed him three times to the chest at around 22:30hrs Friday night.
Police are investigating the motive for the killing since the two men who broke into the house did not steal anything. Lallbachan was a Rice and Poultry farmer and a father of three.
News Room understands that the bandits gained entry to the lower flat of the house by breaking a window and removing the iron bar.
They immediately came face to face with the farmer when they stabbed him to death.
The perpetrators fled through the back door and scaled the fence.
A freezer that stored vegetables was ransacked and contents were thrown on the ground while a bag of Corilla that was prepared to be sent overseas was found disposed of in the backyard.
The man’s wife Nalini Lallbachan told News Room she was upstairs when her husband shouted for her.
“I hear he say Nalini! Nalini! Come them bore me! Them bore me!”
She found her husband standing next to the cupboard drenched in blood.
“I put him to lie down and locked the doors that was opened then I run upstairs calling for help. When no one responded I dialed numbers I remembered and call.”
She said neighbours rushed over and took him to the Skeldon Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
During the ordeal, the man’s 84-year-old sickly Mother-in-law was in her bedroom a short distance from where he was stabbed.
The father of three was described as a humble individual in the community.
The Police recovered a bloodied knife in the kitchen, a cutlass in the yard and a piece of clothing.
