T&T Cop Set On Fire By Boyfriend

Trinidad Guardian:–  A 29-year-old po­lice con­sta­ble, who was set on fire by her Coast Guard of­fi­cer boyfriend dur­ing an ar­gu­ment yes­ter­day, re­mained ward­ed in crit­i­cal con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal, on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, around 4 am, WPC Kel­ly-Ann Humphrey and her boyfriend, who is a chef in the Coast Guard, were at their apart­ment at Bound­ary Road, El So­cor­ro when they got in­to an ar­gu­ment.

The 33-year-old man re­port­ed­ly doused Humphrey with a flam­ma­ble liq­uid and set her on fire.

Neigh­bours heard Humphrey’s screams and forced their way in­to the apart­ment. They re­strained the man as Humphrey, who is as­signed to the guard unit at the Po­lice Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing in Port-of-Spain, was tak­en to the Er­ic Williams Med­ical Sci­ences Com­plex, Mt Hope for treat­ment.

The man re­mained de­tained, up to late yes­ter­day.

Pho­tographs of Humphrey and the man, as well as his name and de­tails of the in­ci­dent, were shared on so­cial me­dia short­ly af­ter the in­ci­dent.

Con­tact­ed on Sun­day, Pres­i­dent of the Po­lice So­cial and Wel­fare As­so­ci­a­tion In­sp Michael Seales said that the mem­bers of his or­gan­i­sa­tion were pray­ing for Humphrey’s re­cov­ery.


  1. He should be charged with attempted murder, and no bail until trial. Some men still think that women are their property for them to use, abuse, and discard when they don’t want the woman anymore. From the amount of articles that I have been reading about woman getting abused around the world, it is evident that respect for women is rapidly declining. I went to a church Revival recently and a Preacher said Woman must obey their husbands, and the man is the head of the household; so I raised my hand to comment, and when I got up and I said not if the man is mistreating the woman, and he is disrespecting her; before I could finish, two ushers came and escorted me out of the church. I guess they did not want to hear the truth. Some men still want to hold on to that archaic Male Chauvinist Pig mentality, (MCP).
