THE SISTER of a La Romaine woman who was found dead in her bedroom early Friday morning said the family was injured while waiting for the results of an autopsy to find out how she died.
Crystal Dassrath, Shadie Dassrath’s older sister, said yesterday that she asked her sister to stay with her three weeks ago, but she (Shadie) did not come.
“At the end of the day, I’m sad, I’m angry, I’m hurt. We all are, “said Crystal via WhatsApp text message.
A senior homicide investigator III said the autopsy should be done tomorrow at the Forensic Science Center in St. James until there are pending Covid-19 tests yesterday.
Shadie, 31, was found with a wound in the center of her forehead in the apartment she shared with a close relative.
She was naked and unresponsive when investigators found her in the Temple Street apartment, La Romaine, and was pronounced dead by a district doctor.
A 24-year-old security guard told police that Shadie returned to her home around 11 p.m. Thursday and they had an argument over a mark on her body.
He told officers that she went to sleep in bed while he stayed in the living room, and two hours later when he checked on her, she was not available.
The security officer sought help from a police officer who lived in a nearby apartment and contacted the police headquarters.
Shadie complained about a relationship
with a man
Crystal Dassrath said Shadie had complained to her about a relationship with a man.
“I told her come and stay with me until… She said she would every time I asked but never came. I spoke to her three weeks ago (and) she said she was “okay” and she wouldn’t go back into that relationship. She said to me, ‘Don’t worry, I’m fine’, “said Crystal.
“Like all of us, my sister was not a saint. She was a free-spirited person, liked being alone and doing her own thing. She would help you, but never wanted or accepted help. It’s been like this since we were kids. This whole situation hurts us … her friends and family among others, but we have no choice, we have to live with it, “she said. Crystal said her sister loved snacks and food, especially doppelgangers and cheesecake.
“She liked looking nice and going out with her friends, she loved working, she never complained about work for a day,” she said.
Homicide Detectives Region III are continuing the investigation.
