Christopher Hosein was found dead in a burnt out vehicle in Ste Madeleine, yesterday.

An autopsy has determined that murder victim Christopher Hosein died from blunt force trauma and smoke inhalation.

The autopsy was performed yesterday at the Forensic Science Centre, Port-of-Spain.

Hosein’s partially burnt body was discovered in his burnt Kia Sportage by a farmer around 6.30 am on Wednesday along a gravel road off the M1 Tasker Road in Ste Madeleine.

It is believed that he was attacked elsewhere and then taken to the gravel road. There was a rope around his neck and his hands were bound. Duct tape was over the mouth and eyes.

Hosein, 44, was an ex fire officer and owner of Experts Fire and Safety Limited. He also worked at the Judiciary as a health and safety officer.

He was last seen alive at his St James Street, Princes Town home on Tuesday night.

He had two daughters, one of whom recently wrote the Secondary Entrance Assessment examination.

A 23-year-old woman who was known to Hosein and another suspect, a 28-year-old man, are still in police custody.

Investigations are ongoing.
