POSTED: 09/3/14 4:30 PM

St. Maarten—The lifeless body of 24 year old Lizcania Maduro, aka Beba Brumant, (24) was discovered in the trunk of a car parked in Nazareth Estate in the vicinity of “Cock Pit” in Dutch Quarter yesterday morning, and police have confirmed that foul play is involved.

According to reports  from Police Inspector Ricardo Henson, “at approximately 4:30 am the lady with initials R.M.O. from the Dominican Republic arrived at the Philipsburg Police Station and reported that her daughter also from the Dominican Republic, left for work on Monday at 6 am and had not returned from work at 3 pm.”

Henson explained that the lady reported that her daughter had not called to inform of her whereabouts and this was highly unusual behavior for the young lady. This prompted the mother to make efforts throughout Monday night of Monday to find her daughter and when her attempts failed the mother sought the assistance of the police.

Shortly after making her report, a close friend of her daughter tracked the approximate location of her smartphone via its GPS tracking system, which was in the Nazareth area. The police was immediately informed of that information and a patrol was sent to investigate. In Nazareth Estate in the vicinity of the “Cockpit” the patrol located a small black Hyundai Accent.

During the investigation the officers searched the entire vehicle and found the lifeless body of a female in the trunk of the car. Noting the condition in which the body was found the investigating officers knew that foul play was involved. The Police Central Dispatch was immediately informed of the situation and the area was closed off to preserve the crime scene.

According to Henson the car in which the body was found is known to be the car the victim usually drives.  Detectives and Forensic Department personnel visited the crime scene where an in depth investigation was conducted. The body of the victim, which had been pronounced dead by Dr. Mercuur, has been confiscated for further investigation.

“The investigation is in its preliminary stages and a lot has to be done to determine what happened, why and who the one is or ones are that are responsible for this act. The Police Department is therefore making an appeal to the public asking anyone who may have any information that could shed some light on this case immediately get in contact with the detective department or use the tip line 9300,” Henson said.

He noted that murders, especially unsolved murders are not just a matter of concern for the police but also for the community and efforts from the public to solve such crimes are beneficial to the entire island.
