Pandemonium broke out at the home of two-year-old Kimanie Watson yesterday, as a post mortem examination into the child’s death confirmed that she was brutally sodomized.
The Post Mortem, which was done by Government Pathologist Dr. Nehaul Singh at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC)’s mortuary, revealed that she died from haemorrhage and shock due to multiple abdominal injuries.
A source who witnessed the PM told this newspaper that the child’s anus was fully dilated. “She spleen rupture. It appear like she been face down when this thing happen.”
Kimanie of 46 South Haslington, East Coast Demerara (ECD) was pronounced dead on Monday at the GPHC. Doctors had suspected that the child was sodomized.
Her 15-year-old uncle under whose care she was left prior to her death was taken into police custody. He was subsequently released on $25,000 station bail yesterday.
At the family’s Haslington’s home yesterday Kaieteur News was told that when the dead child’s mother, Venice Phillips, heard that her daughter died from multiple abdominal injuries, she confronted her mother, Dianne Graham, who is also the mother of the 15-year-old suspect.
“Kimanie’s mother is going mad. She didn’t go to the hospital to witness the post mortem because she can’t face it. When we come home and tell her, she was crying. Her mother (Graham) come in the yard and start talking that she will take a lawyer so Venice go to her and start expressing her feelings,” a relative, Kiana Primo said.
According to Primo, Phillips was expressing her feelings of losing her daughter to her Graham when “she (Graham) tell her that Kimanie was molested in Trinidad and not here so Venice got mad and run her with a cutlass.”
“Graham run in a neighbour house and hide in her wardrobe until the police came. My uncle had to take Venice for a drive to calm her mind because she was going crazy and she was saying that she has to see her daughter.”
This newspaper was told that Graham was the taken to the police station where she eventually got her son bailed.
The day little Kimanie died
Kaieteur News was told that Phillips left home for work, leaving Kimanie and her six-month-old baby with Graham.
Graham subsequently left to go and collect money, leaving the kids with her son.
“I see when she passed out and Kimanie was running behind her and she tell Kimanie that she don’t walk with stink baby and Kimanie cry and she turn back and come here,” Primo, who lives in the house located at the front of Graham’s home, said.
She explained that when little Watson came to her; she noticed that the child had defecated and called the 15-year-old to clean her.
“When he (suspect) come, the child was crying and didn’t want to go to him but I tell her to go because I didn’t think he would do that. After an hour I see he run across by the neighbour and I ask him what happen and he say that he went and get panadols,” Primo stressed.
She added that within a couple of minutes, he called and told her that Watson was sick and that she was continuously defecating and vomiting.
“I know I give him the child good, good and all of a sudden she just get sick. I took her to the hospital and that’s when they said she is already dead.
“The morning before the child died, he come here early and wake up my cousin and asked him to borrow a porn DVD but my cousin didn’t lend him any,” Primo noted.
No one heard any unusual noise in the house that day.
Fifteen-year-old tells his side of the story
“My cousin (Primo) call me and tell me that me niece defecate and when I carry her and wash out her skin I carry she upstairs and give she her tea. She call me and tell me that she belly hurting,” he said.
The 15-year-old added, “I gave her Panadol and I continue watching TV. When I go back to check on her, I see she mess up again. I clean her again and she mess up back like two times. I clean her and I rub her skin with oil and she went shaking up so I check her heart but she went breathing.”
He added that he called his cousin and they took her to the hospital.
When asked if he asked to borrow a porn DVD, he denied and claimed that he never had sex before.
“I didn’t do anything, the police just collect me and lock me up,” the 15-year-old told Kaieteur News.
According to Graham, her son is innocent. He didn’t do anything. “Is some evil spirit went in that house. I can put my head on a block that my son didn’t do that.”
Police are continuing with their investigations.
