Murder trial: Female victim kidnapped, butchered in trinidad

Nearly seven years after a prominent businesswoman was kidnapped and murdered, a court in Trinidad and Tobago has heard that her killers had used an electric saw to dismember her body, possibly even while she was still alive.

The court was told that Vindra Naipaul Coolman was cut up and her body parts placed into black garbage bags for disposal.

Twelve men have been charged with murdering the businesswoman, who was kidnapped from her home in Central Trinidad on December 19, 2006.

The body of the businesswoman has never been found.

Senior Counsel Israel Khan told the 12-member jury at the start of yesterday’s trial that the woman’s kidnappers kept calling and making further demands even after a ransom was paid over and after she was killed.
