Autopsy concludes Anneicia drowned

An au­top­sy con­duct­ed on the body of Bagatelle res­i­dent An­ne­i­cia Lewis has con­firmed that death was due to drown­ing. The au­top­sy was con­duct­ed yes­ter­day at the Foren­sic Sci­ence Cen­tre.

How­ev­er, Guardian Me­dia un­der­stands that the per­son Lewis was with at the time of the in­ci­dent is still be­ing in­ves­ti­gat­ed and ques­tioned by po­lice. A three-day search came to a trag­ic end on Sun­day morn­ing when Lewis’ body was dis­cov­ered float­ing at the mouth of the Diego Mar­tin Riv­er. Lewis was the moth­er of a 12-year-old girl.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, at about 6: 50 am po­lice of­fi­cers re­cov­ered a fe­male body South West of the Bagatelle Riv­er in the vicin­i­ty of the La Riv­iera Tow­ers in West­moor­ings. Of­fi­cers re­ceived a tele­phone call which led the TTPS Coastal and River­ine Unit to the dis­cov­ery of the drift­ing body. The of­fi­cers were able to re­trieve and bring the body to shore which was then iden­ti­fied by Ab­bion Phillip, Lewis’ broth­er. Lewis, 36, of Bagatelle Road, Diego Mar­tin was re­port­ed miss­ing on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports made at the West End Po­lice Sta­tion, at about 1 pm on Fri­day, Lewis and a friend de­cid­ed to take a walk along a track that leads to the falls in Fond Palmiste. At about 2 pm there was a heavy down­pour which made the path near­ly im­pass­able and Lewis re­port­ed­ly de­cid­ed to turn around and head out be­cause of the ris­ing wa­ters. 

A search par­ty was formed, which con­sist­ed of the Trinidad and To­ba­go Po­lice Ser­vice’s (TTPS) Air Sup­port Unit, Coastal and River­ine Unit, Cy­ber Crime Unit, the Trinidad and To­ba­go Fire Ser­vice San­ta Cruz Search and Res­cue unit and the Trinidad and To­ba­go De­fence Force Camp Og­den be­fore she was even­tu­al­ly found.
