Two Bahamians killed abroad, one murdered, another struck by train deemed ‘suspicious’

NASSAU, BAHAMAS  — A Bahamian student in Houston, Texas was shot and died in hospital last week Friday, while a Bahamian woman residing in Canada was killed in a train collision just over two weeks ago, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed yesterday.

Kani Rahming, a resident of Lazy Hollow, exited his apartment around 10 pm to investigate a rock that was thrown through the window when he was shot in the chest.

Judith Taylor, a Bahamian living and working in Canada, was struck by a UP Express train while she was on the rail line near Weston Road and Black Creek Drive around 6am on September 7.

Canadian authorities treated the death as “suspicious” and expect a preliminary report to be completed by the end of this week.

In a statement yesterday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it was saddened to learn of the deaths.

“The ministry officials in conjunction with the Bahamas High Commission in Ottawa will remain in contact with the family of Ms Taylor, as well as, Bahamian and Canadian police, to obtain more information and to facilitate the transshipment of Ms Taylor’s remains from Toronto to the capital,” read a statement.
