Stabroek News – April 22, 2008

Police are still to locate the suspect in the murder of 22-year-old Foulis, East Coast Demerara (ECD) resident, Shaneiza Khan.

Khan was discovered dead on Sunday in the Enmore, ECD home that she once shared with her reputed husband of four years, who has not been seen since.  A post-mortem examination performed on her body yesterday found that she died as a result of her throat being slit. She was also stabbed under the breast.

Police are still hunting for her husband.

Yesterday Khan’s mother, Bibi Nazmoon Hamid told Stabroek News that documents belonging to her daughter, including her passport, were missing.  

Khan was discovered lying in a pool of her blood on Sunday by her sister, Faneeza, who had been told to check on her by Hamid after she had received a call from a neighbour stating that they had heard the now-dead woman screaming on Saturday night and receiving no answer when they called her.

Relatives said that after suffering abuse from her husband, Khan had moved out of the home four weeks ago and after landing a job had gone to collect her clothes on Saturday. She never returned.
