Trinidad: Pregnant Teen Found Dead

guardian.co.tt- A preg­nant 15-year-old girl was found dead in her bed­room by her younger sis­ter on Mon­day at her home in San Juan.

According to a police report, at about 1 pm the teenager, a pupil of the San Juan North Sec­ondary School com­plained to a close male rel­a­tive that she was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing ex­cru­ci­at­ing stomach pains and vom­it­ing.

Po­lice said the girl was then giv­en a cup of “saf­fron tea” and an­tibi­otics. How­ev­er, about 15 min­utes af­ter she was found dead by her 13-year-old sis­ter.

A team of po­lice of­fi­cers from the San Juan Po­lice Sta­tion and Homi­cide Bu­reau went to the house where they found the cup of tea, a home preg­nan­cy kit which con­tained two used tests, both in­di­cat­ing pos­i­tive re­sults and sev­er­al tablets in­clud­ing ‘Amox­il 500 mg’, un­named red and yel­low ones and un­named round or­ange pills.

An au­top­sy has been or­dered to de­ter­mine the cause of death.
