Bahamas police have released a sketch of a suspect they want to question into last Friday’s death of Guyanese-born teacher, Marisha Bowen, in her apartment home.
According to Bahamas’ Tribune, the sketch would follow reports that a second man was taken into custody in connection with the homicide.
The 35-year-old C W Saunders School teacher’s body was discovered by police at her apartment on Friday morning.
According to police sources, the second man was arrested yesterday and was known to the victim, who is a native of Guyana.
She was not only mother to a son and daughter, but was three months pregnant at the time of her death.
On Sunday police confirmed that an African man was assisting them with investigations. At the time, authorities were also said to be questioning a woman in relation to this case.
Police sources told The Tribune that an apparent love triangle was being probed as a possible motive for the teacher’s death.
Bowen was found by other tenants of a complex shortly after 8am on Friday in her apartment on Read Sea Road, off Sumner Street. She was suffering from a single wound to the body, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The wound was described by sources as a slit to the victim’s throat.
Neighbours were said to have heard screaming from her apartment and it is believed to have led to the discovery of her body, sources told this newspaper.
On Sunday, a relative of the victim said he remained shocked and heartbroken as he questioned how her 16-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter would cope with the sudden loss. She was three months pregnant at the time of her death, the relative confirmed.
“We are very shocked and hurt by this,” the relative said. “She was loving and caring and this was very unexpected. She will be missed.”
On Friday, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, in a statement released just hours after the discovery by police, said school was dismissed early and urged parents to immediately collect students from the school “due to the untimely death of a teacher.”
She had taught at C W Saunders School from 2014.
