TRINIDAD EXPRESS – Missing mother Sharlene Somai has been found, dead. She was killed and her body dumped in the bushes near her home at Peterfield Village, Chaguanas. It appears she died the very night she went missing.

The family knew immediately that something was wrong.
They searched the area all of Wednesday and today, and criticised the police for their slow response.
This afternoon, police were led to the body by Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne who said he received information from an anonymous source.
