An autopsy conducted on the body of Latoya “Toya” Craig confirmed police suspicions that the 27-year-old mother of one died from asphyxia.
A well-placed source told OBSERVER media that government pathologist Dr. Petra Miller Nanton conducted the post-mortem examination on Craig who was discovered hanging in a building located in Liberta earlier this month.
The results indicate that Craig of Clare Hall died as a result of the hanging.
The autopsy also revealed that Craig suffered blunt force trauma to the forehead, but, the damage did not go to the brain.
When our newsroom communicated with the source yesterday the time of death was not declared. However, it is believed that Craig died late Wednesday going into Thursday morning.
“To make a definite timeline you would have to go take temperatures overnight and temperatures in the day,” the source said.
The in-depth autopsy report is expected to be concluded at a later date.
The coroner’s inquest which was already started has since been adjourned sine die.
The police launched an investigation into Craig’s death and that of her former lover Bharat Kumar. Their bodies were discovered hanging on the same compound on October 19.
Discovery of the bodies came two days after Craig’s mother reported her daughter and three-year-old grandson had left home to accompany Kumar to a house in “English Harbour”. When Craig did not answer several telephone calls and had not returned home her mother raised the alarm.
The search for Craig ended tragically, and fortunately, her young son was found alive on the same compound and had to be rushed to the Mount St. John’s Medical Centre where he was treated for dehydration.
The child is now at home recovering from his ordeal.
Meanwhile, the autopsy on the body of Kumar is scheduled for today.
