Husband and wife deaths case has ‘very unique features’ say police

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

The police investigation into the deaths of Anthony and Regina Robinson, a married couple found in their St George's home on Monday, has been described as a case with “some very unique features”.

Police reassured the community that “all possibilities and angles” are being explored.

“Their deaths appear to be as a result of acute wounds to both bodies and the circumstances of their deaths dictate that a comprehensive and thorough investigation will be conducted,” Acting Superintendent Nicholas Pedro said yesterday.

Asked if authorities were currently looking for suspects, Acting Detective Chief Inspector Dave Greenridge said: “We have to keep all options open at this point.”

He declined to specify whether the matter was being investigated as a murder-suicide.

Acting Supt Pedro, when asked if the public had anything to be concerned about, said: “We don't believe so, at this point. Obviously, the investigation is still in its infancy.”

Witnesses are still being sought and CCTV is also being reviewed.

The scene was still being processed and police did not say whether weapons had been recovered.

Police are keen to speak with any person who saw, spoke or interacted with the couple over the past few days — especially over the weekend.

Further details are being withheld pending an autopsy by a forensic pathologist who flew to the Island yesterday.

“We are keenly aware that this incident will have prompted alarm and fear in this closely knit neighbourhood,” Acting Supt Pedro said.

“We want to reassure the community residents that we are looking at all possibilities and angles, including the obvious ones.”

Children are involved in the investigation and were present with other family at the scene.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Serious Crime Unit at 247-1739 or to call Acting Det Ch Insp Greenridge directly at 247-1185. The confidential Crimestoppers number is 800-8477.
