Relatives are still waiting for an autopsy to be done on Natalia Cooper after a COVID scare among police officers delayed the procedure.
Cooper was killed on Old Year’s night 2020.
A relative said the police were supposed to have transported her body to Forensic Science Centre on Monday but one of the officers was suspected to have contracted COVID-19. She said they were told that the autopsy would be done at the FSC today (Wednesday).
One of Cooper’s two children, who was in the car at the time of the incident was also injured.
The three-year-old child may have to undergo a skin graph on his toe.
The boy who is autistic and his two-year-old brother was in the backseat of their mother’s car when gunmen opened fire as she was reversing in the driveway of their 3rd Company, Indian Walk, Princes Town home last Thursday.
Cooper’s older son was injured on his toe and ankle on his left leg after he was grazed by a bullet.
The younger child was not hurt.
The boys lost their father Kadeem Jordon under similar circumstances last April. He was driving his Mercedes Benz in Pleasantville when a car crashed into his vehicle and the occupants fired at him. He was hit multiple times.
Relatives yesterday said the child underwent surgery at the San Fernando General Hospital to repair the injury to his toe but he may also require a skin graft.
Cooper, 25, had received death threats following Jordon’s murder. Police said his murder was drug-related.
Fearing for her safety, she moved to Princes Town and kept her address secret from most. It is believed that her killers followed her home after she picked up her children at the home of Jordon’s relatives in Pleasantville.
