SHOCK: Hyacinth Hayden, a retired nurse, was stabbed to death in her Green Park, Trelawny, Jamaica, home on New Year’s Eve. Police are trying to locate her suspected killer.
According to a distraught Ashley Hayden, husband of the slain retired nurse, shortly after 3:00 pm he left the family home to purchase a phone card and other items for his wife at a community shop.
He said that on his return, about 15 minutes later, he discovered the blood-drenched body of his wife slumped on the kitchen step. She was found with multiple stab wounds to the upper body, he said.
“… Her mouth [was] open and [there was] blood all over her chest. They (attackers) must have been around watching me. Is only someone who know that the dog was chained and could only reach a certain distance that could have done it,” said Hayden. “When me come back the dog a raise hell!”
There was speculation that the killer or killers, who might have been known to the retired nurse, lurked near her house until her husband left the premises to commit the crime.
Hayden said that when he went inside the ransacked house, blood was spattered all over the floor, which suggested that the killers may have been searching for money and other valuables.
“There was blood, from living room come right down. Every drawer pull out, everything turn upside down,” the widower said. Source: Jamaica Observer
This is a travesty. Hyacinth Hayden was doing a lot of good in her community and was taken away from her family as a result of a senseless act of violence. Absolutely reprehensible.
