She was pronounced dead at the scene.Sources told The Tribune that neighbours heard screaming at around 07:00h, which may have led to her discovery. ACP Dean did not disclose the nature of the wound and said an autopsy would have to be performed to determine the exact cause of death. Marisha Bowen, a Guyanese, has worked at CW Saunders since 2014. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, in a statement released just hours after the discovery by Police, said CW Saunders Principal Shelton Higgs had dismissed school early and that parents were to immediately collect students from the school “due to the untimely death of a teacher”.The body of the woman is removed from the scene (Photo Shawn Hanna Tribune staff)“We are following some good leads and we believe this matter is a matter that once we continue along the trajectory that we are on, we should bring it to resolution very soon,” said ACP Dean.When asked for more details about the circumstances leading up to the woman’s death and subsequent discovery, ACP Dean said: “We wouldn’t want to go into much more details about that right now because detectives are on the scene and it’s a live matter right now and as the information unfolds, we’ll come back with some more information.”Friday’s incident came just days after a man died in a hospital of his wounds after reportedly being shot in the Union Village area.
