Trinidad Express  – An elderly British man and his wife were brutally hacked to death in the quiet village of Carnbee in Tobago.

Attorney Richard Wheeler, 73, and his wife, Grace Wheeler, 67, were found murdered at their Riseland Gardens in  Carnbee, home yesterday morning.

Wheeler, who was originally from Sheffield, England, was a partner in the Tobago law offices of Lex Caribbean and specialised in conveyancing and property development.

His wife was a real estate agent attached to Island Investments.

They had been living in Tobago for the past 16 years.

The couple was attacked by unknown assailants between Monday night and early yesterday morning.

Attorney Martin George said Crime Stoppers was offering a reward for information that could help solve the murders.

“In my capacity as the (Tobago House of Assembly) representative on the board of Crime Stoppers, I have been able to get the board to agree to offer a special reward of $100,000 for information leading to the arrest and capture of the suspects in this matter,” said George.

  2. Very sad. These incidents give a bad name to the Caribbean and the actions of a few thugs can jeopardize the tourism-based economies of several islands.
