Port-of-Spain — Eighty nine year old Ann Corrion migrated from Grenada to Trinidad in the 1950’s and was well loved and known in the area where she lived.
Her life was cut short this week when she was bludgeoned to death with a stone at her home by a 26-year-old Princes Town man who relatives and neighbours said was either “demon-possessed” or a drug addict.
Police say around 8.30 a.m. they found the suspect in the front yard of the house with his clothes drenched in blood.
He had earlier attacked Corrion, as she sat in the porch of her home at Railway Road.
The man, according to reports, appeared disoriented and did not speak to police, they said the suspect also killed a chicken and ate its raw flesh, and ripped apart Corrion’s pet parrot.
A neighbour said: “Around half past seven (Saturday) I heard him pelting stones. There were children sitting in the gallery with her (Corrion). He went up in the gallery and she told the children to go. He took a stone and knocked her out. She didn’t bawl or anything. She fell and he was just bashing her head.”
