Man brutally stabs wife to death then commits suicide
It was just around 6 Saturday morning that the gruesome discovery of Vanessa Richmond-James’ body was made at her home in Jones Town Mahaica. She reportedly sustained multiple stab wounds about the body, her hands and feet were tied, a pillow over her face and her throat slit.
The 26-year-old mother of one was reportedly killed by her husband Ryan, who then committed suicide by ingesting a poisonous substance.
Her sister told members of the media that her brother-in-law had always accused her sister of having an affair outside of their marriage.
The family feels that the act was a premeditated one, since the couple’s son was left with his relatives.
Her mother told reporters that she saw her daughter and husband last Friday night at a ‘queh queh’. The woman said from all indications everything appeared to be ok.
While the woman remained silent on what was taking place in her home, she documented her story in her notebook which was left with bitter memories for her grieving family.
The death of the woman has shattered the peace of the normally peaceful community as scores of residents were amazed at what transpired.
