Authorities Suspect Rape and Murder in Death of 16-Year-Old Yenifer Bridge

17

Authorities are intensifying their investigation into the death of 16-year-old Yenifer Bridge, whose body was discovered near Fig Tree Hill Drive on Friday morning.

Suspecting rape and murder, they are awaiting the pathologist’s report to confirm the cause of death. Preliminary findings indicate she suffered a violent death and may have been sexually assaulted.

Clifton Cabral, Head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), shared on Browne and Browne that photos revealed Yenifer’s shorts were improperly fastened, suggesting they may have been removed.

Although there were no visible injuries from blunt objects or weapons, Cabral hinted they have a suspected cause of death pending autopsy results.

The case is being treated as a possible abduction leading to sexual assault and murder.

Yenifer, a mother to a two-year-old boy, was found after her child was discovered wandering alone on Jonas Road the previous night. Authorities are ensuring proper care for the child amid these tragic events.

  1. A body found outside, would not be the best kind to have withheld the manner of death, if it was a stabbing or blunt force or gunshot. Unlike some untrained people have posted online. There would be too much risk of anyone being interrogated to successful claim the information was had through the grapevine.

    Anyway, all folks with a camera on your real property (land) leading to the child’s location, please review, and provide footage to law enforcement. Ensure you keep copies for yourself.

    All folks with cameras leading to the mother, also review footage from around that time. I would say begin about 5 hours before discovery of the child.

    A professional profiler/investigator need to see the body to determine, if it was someone she knew, or random criminal seeing an opportunity and taking it. Which means, we may have a serial killer or potential serial killer. Conduct like this, once done, will be hard to stop.

    It is why this information would have been vital to be release to the public without giving details of details but obvious facts like obvious cause of death in this situation should or could have been released.

    These are the kind of cases you must use experts in forensic, profiling and investigation. This is a potential public threat and should be treated as such until evidence contradict this.

    The fact the child was left and to me, most likely brought to the location points to….

  2. Injustice is lurking around….watch it Mr. King Babylon, watch it before people start tek matters in dem own hands

  3. THE KILLER, OR KILLERS MAY BE HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT. EVERY CONCEIVABLE ANGLE MUST BE THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED, HOWEVER INSIGNIFICANT IT MAY SEEM. Que en paz descanse, que en gloria este’

  4. The defendants filed a motion to dismiss, which the District Court granted. The Court observed that ——-‘s complaint was “lengthy, repetitious, and difficult to follow.”

    Don’t you have a busy intersection to monitor so that you can jump in front of a distracted motorist doing 3mph in order to claim millions from their insurance provider because you suffered permanent life changing injuries?

  5. This is a sad sorry and I extend condolences to the relatives. I must say that I have some concerns though.

    This is a 16 year girl and she has a 2 year old child. Which means she got pregnant at the age of 13 or 14. ANR, in your earlier report, it was started that her missing child was eventually reunited with the father (article: https://antiguanewsroom.com/police-rescued-toddler-late-last-night/).

    Does that mean that the father was never charged for rape? How old is the father? I guess we can’t charge him now because he needs to take care of the child.

  6. Sad, sad story!
    Pregnant at 14,
    By whom?
    Statutory rape? Eh!
    14 and Pregnant!
    Thrown like thrash along the road!
    There’s a special place in hell for the perpetrator!
    Give yourself up you cretin!
    You will never have peace!

  7. This is also what I presumed happened. Some pig raped the young mother and left her for dead so it was never known. He or multiple, left her for dead and her child to wander with out her and anything could have also happened to him as well! SMH,

  8. @JBF….mouth open, story jump out, red flags start raise
    I must take this humungous opportunity to say “WELCOME TO THE LAND OF SEA AND SUN !”

  9. the perpetrator(s) of this cruel act i know you are reading the news trying to find a way to escape but you will be caught with the DNA eveidence on the young lady and all the camera footage from Fig Tree Drive to Jonas Road……go and turn in yourself now!! let your family see how disgraceful, nasty, wicked and thirsty you are. how would you like someone to do that to your child or children, your mom, your daughter you aunt:?

  10. So sad rest in peace Yenifer
    I pray we get justice
    Crimes that are committed against non nationals especially our Caribbean are most time unsolved.
    Justice for yenifer

  13. SUSPECT RAPE AND MURDER – INVESTIGATORS ‘PUSSY-FOOTING’ AROUND

    While one may ‘Suspect Rape,’ though the exact ‘…Cause of Death’ shall be determined by a ‘Pathologist,’ professionally speaking, ‘…Rawlston Pompey’ would emphatically state that the victim was in fact ‘…MURDERED.’

    WHY?

    Possibly to conceal the identity of the ‘…COLD-BLOODED KILLER/S.’

    CRIME SOLVING:

    Criminal Investigators shall know that ‘SOLVING CRIME’ is ‘NOT,’ and has never been about avoiding ‘…Organizational Embarrassment.’

    NOTE:

    Even as Criminal Investigators ‘…HEDGED,’ or seen to be ‘…HEDGING,’ the ‘…MURDERERS’ are within their ‘…Reach and Grasp.’

    DENIAL

    They are all in apparent ‘…DENIAL.’

    In such ‘…State of Mind,’ this crime, and/or any other, could never be solved.

    PRIME SUSPECTS

    Those that appeared to have made up this story, (Police Diary: 12: 15 AM: Friday, June 28, 2024): ‘SHALL’ be considered the ‘…PRIME SUSPECTS.’

    ‘…While driving on Jonas Road (with family member/friend):
    (i) ‘…Looked in rear view mirror: (With bionic eyes)
    (ii) …Observed movements in bush alongside the road:
    (iii) …Stopped to check it out:
    (iv) …Found a little child (boy).’

    CONTRARY IS PROVED:

    The professional Criminal Investigator would take this with a ‘…Pinch of Salt.’

    This is the ‘…Prime Suspect’ until the ‘…CONTRARY IS PROVED.’

    DON’T BE FOOLED.

    ULTIMATUM

    ONE MORE DAY TO SOLVE: OR RESIGN OR RETIRE.

  14. A cheating husband is involved with this incident.. definitely someone that has a lot to hide. If he was a cruel killer, he would have hurt the child, but he fled the seen in fear.. definitely a person who is connected..a married man the cops should be looking for.
