Bahamas: Double homicide: Mother and 10-year-old daughter found dead in Nassau Village

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — A mother and her young daughter were found dead in their Stark Street, Nassau Village, home yesterday morning, according to authorities.

Officers responded to reports of two women being found dead around 8am, and found the girl who appeared to be around 10 and her mother who is believed to be 30 with injuries, according to Assistant Superintendent Audley Peters, police press liaison.

Asked about the motive for the killings, Peters said it was unclear, but based on the “evidence we are looking at, it appears to be domestic in this incident”.

When how the mother and daughter were killed, Peters said he was unable to say “what instrument was used because we are in the initial stage of the investigation and a medical practitioner has to determine the cause of death in these instances”.

According to Peters, police were following a promising lead.

He said: “In due course, you should hear the results of that.”

In a later update around 7pm, Peters said police had not arrested anyone in connection with the incident as yet.
