Homicide officers are investigating the death of a 45-year-old Diamond Vale mother of two who succumbed to injuries about her body on Sunday, at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.

Debra Wilson, a cashier at the Treasury, died six days after allegedly being pushed from a moving vehicle onto Wrightson Road on Carnival Monday, the police said.

The autopsy performed on Monday at the Forensic Science Centre revealed Wilson died of blunt trauma to the head and multiple injuries to her shoulders.

Police reported that on Carnival Monday afternoon, Wilson had been travelling in a car with a relative, when they had an altercation on Wrightson Road.

There are conflicting stories, however, as to whether Wilson was pushed out of the moving vehicle, or if she jumped out of it.

Neighbours at her Carnelian Gardens home, described Wilson as a “very heavy person.” She was said to be close to 300 pounds.

They said she really did not interact with others in the community.

She stayed to herself and we only saw her when she tended to her garden,” one neighbour added.

Attempts to contact Wilson’s relatives proved futile.

A former soldier is wanted for questioning by the police.

Detectives said investigations are continuing.

The murder toll now stands at 40 for the year.
