WBD murder-suicide: 12-Y-O boy discovers mother lying in pool of blood, father hanging


A couple was found dead in an apparent murder-suicide that occurred between 18:00-09:00hrs on Tuesday or Wednesday at Recht-door-Zee Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara ( WBD). The discovery was made by the couple’s 12-year-old son.

Dead are 36-year-old Camile Robertson- Rodrigues, and 42-year-old Rolin Rodrigues. According to the Guyana Police Force (GPF), Camile and Rolin were married and lived together. They were the caretakers for the property where their lifeless bodies were found.

It is alleged that the woman went behind her husband’s back and visited the interior to attend a friend’s party. Upon her return home on Tuesday, she met her husband consuming alcohol.

However, on Wednesday, the child went to the premises and called out for his mother but got no answer. He then peeped through a window and saw his mother lying on the bed in blood, while Rolin was seen hanging from the roof inside the house. 

He then immediately went and alerted his uncle who went to the house and confirmed the child’s report. An examination of the woman’s body revealed what appeared to be three stab wounds. The suspected murder weapon was found a short distance away on a chest of drawers.

Both bodies were then escorted to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival. The bodies are at Ezekiel Funeral Parlour awaiting an autopsy.
