Brendon Mohammed

Found dead: Brendon Mohammed

ALTHOUGH his relatives do not believe that he took his own life, an autopsy has ruled out foul play in the shooting death of police constable Brendon Mohammed.

The pathologist found that Mohammed died from a single gunshot to the head. But questions were raised since two spent shells were found next to the body.

A senior police officer of the Central Police Division said it is believed that Mohammed discharged one round into the air before he took his life with the second shot.

Mohammed, 46, a father of three, was found dead in a bushy area off Robert Trace Extension, Warrenville, at about 12.30 p.m. last Thursday.

His vehicle was parked nearby. None of his possessions was missing.

The body was clad in the clothing he was seen wearing when he left home that morning to attend court- purple shirt, black dress pants and dress shoes.

His relatives had told media that he 'too much to live for', noting that he was eagerly looking forward to the birth of his second grandchild.

Mohammed worked as a fingerprint expert working at the Criminal Records Office in Port of Spain.

His funeral took place on Friday at his home at El Carmen Trace No 1, St Helena.
