Mother of woman found dead in Aracari bathtub doubts suicide


The mother of the young lady found dead in a bathtub with her boyfriend at a West Demerara hotel Sunday doubts that it was a case of suicide, and is anxious for Wednesday’s post mortem to determine the cause of death.

26-year-old Sabrina ‘Priya’ Nandram and her boyfriend Kevin Singh were found dead in a bathtub at the Aracari Resort, West Bank Demerara.

Sabita Singh, 46, the mother of Nandram said her daughter left her on Saturday morning to drop her two sons by their grandmother on the East Coast of Demerara and she was scheduled to return on Sunday around noon. The children are being cared for by their paternal grandparents; their father resides overseas.

Mrs Singh said her daughter would usually take the children on holidays and they were all at her home at Allness in Berbice. On Saturday, her daughter left to take the children back to their grandparents.

Mrs Singh said she last heard from her daughter on Saturday evening around 19:00 hrs when she called her on the phone and she said she was in Georgetown and will return on Sunday.

On Sunday, when she did not return at noon as she indicated, Mrs Singh said she continuously called her phone and it was at around 18:00 hrs that a Policeman answered the phone, only to tell her that her daughter was dead.

She told the News Room that her daughter never spoke about taking her own life as she was one who feared death. The mother is at a loss about what happened.

Mrs Singh said her daughter showed no sign of having problems. She said that it was last November that Nandram quit her job at a Gas Station in Buxton, East Coast Demerara and returned home to Berbice.

She said the boyfriend was known to the family and would even visit the family house at Allness; she said the couple, who were together for about two years, appeared happy.

She described her daughter as a caring, loving and willing individual who loved her children dearly.

On Sunday, their lifeless bodies were discovered with a bottle nearby containing what was suspected to be a poisonous substance.

Singh’s family has said they did not know the other victim, Nandram.

Police said the couple checked into the hotel about 15:38hrs Saturday and was scheduled to check out at 12 noon on Sunday.

However, Singh made arrangements for a longer stay at the hotel.

When hotel management called the room and got no response, they entered the room and discovered the couple dead.

Police investigations are ongoing.
