BONES that appeared to be human that were found on a construction site at Port of Spain General Hospital last Wednesday have been taken to the Forensic Science Centre in Federation Park to be examined.

Just after noon, following heavy rain, the bones were seen protruding out of the muddy work site.

The police were called and officers of Belmont Police Station arrived with their colleagues from the Crime Scene Unit.

The bones, which were scattered not far apart, were gathered, placed in a body bag and taken to the Forensic Centre.


SHOCKED and flabbergasted.

That is how North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA) chief executive officer Davlin Thomas felt whilst reading the Sunday Express lead story yesterday in which outpatients related their agony of having to wait long periods for health care at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.

Most outpatients interviewed by the Express over the last few weeks expressed continued frustration over postponements of appointments.

A Santa Flora man was chased and shot dead in the middle of the roadway yesterday.

He was identified as Trevor Hospedales.

Police said 47-year-old Hospedales was sitting on the roadside with his stepson, a Venezuelan national, when a man walked up to them at around midday.
