A 14-year-old girl was abducted, bound and subject to a brutal beating after being lured by some other teens on the pretense of going to a party on Thursday, September 27th, 2016 in Trinidad. The teens involved in the beating range from the ages of 13 to 16. The girls had tied and gagged the victim who also vomited at one point and she was put into a shallow pit that they had dug in preparation for the beating. The girl, who survived the ordeal, was beaten about the head with a stick and a knife and at one point hit in the head with a hammer. The victim suffered a cut tendon in one of her arms as well.
The torture session went on for at least three hours before the victim was able to escape by jumping into a house near the location she was taken. She managed to make her get away after one of the teens went to relieve herself. The neighbor then called the Military Police who, when they arrived on scene, found only one of the teens still at the location and she was arrested. Warrants were issued for the other two girls and they were apprehended the following day. All three confessed (how could they deny it having been stupid enough to film it?) and are facing serious adult charges due to the heinous nature of the crime.
Now, what was the cause…. the justification for doing this to a young woman? Why, jealousy of course. It turns out the victim was involved with an ex boyfriend of one of the torturers and that was the main motivation for the abuse. The victim was treated and released and though her physical wounds will heal soon, her mental anguish will linger for quite some time.
Mad props to @mrspink for the torture session.
