Trini woman murdered in Florida, husband commits suicide

A Trinidadian woman living in Florida has been killed in a suspected case of murder-suicide.

45-year-old Vicky Samaroo-Torres was found dead inside her Vero Beach home early this morning.

Broward County detectives told local media the mother of three was a victim of domestic violence.

The Miami Herald reported that the lead suspect in the case is her husband Pedro Torres.

However, the area's sheriff's office confirmed that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the popular Sawgrass Malls carpark.

Earlier, detectives described the man as armed and dangerous.

One of the victim's relatives tweeted today "please pray that they find this monster."

Samaroo-Torres is believed to be originally from the Williamsville community in South Trinidad.
