Shannon Banfield Murder - TTPS Dunces Claim Several Requests Were Made For CCTV Footage

Trinidad and Tobago Police Service advises that it acted swiftly and followed strict protocol with respect to the investigation into the disappearance of Shannon Banfield but a request made to IAM and Company, where the victim's body was later found on Thursday 8th December, 2016, to access CCTV footage on three separate occasions, was not readily forthcoming.

Police investigators visited the business establishment over the course of the three days since Ms Banfield was reported missing by her mother, Ester Sherry-Anne Lopez, to the Santa Cruz Police Station, at 12:15am, on Tuesday 6th December, 2016.

All the other business establishments, in the area where Ms Banfield was last known to have been, including Pennywise, were approached for access to their CCTV footage and this was immediately forthcoming.

The Anti-Kidnapping Unit and the Criminal Investigations Department actively pursued the disappearance of Ms Banfield as they sought to have her safely return home.

Photographs of Ms Banfield were circulated early Tuesday morning and were later that day broadcast on outdoor billboard screens, released to the media and on social media.

The investigation into Ms Banfield's disappearance and her untimely and unfortunate death is being vigorously pursued by the Homicide Bureau of Investigations.


The question that begs to be asked and answered is why these TTPS Dunces who are usually quite quick to arrest and lock up people, frivolously and maliciously most times, for resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duties, did not immediately take into custody those persons who by virtue of their failure, refusal or unwillingness to provide the CCTV footage were obstructing a police investigation into a missing person report.

Why was it necessary for the Police to go back on three occasions over a period of three days to literally beg for the footage when they could have simply obtained a warrant to search and seize, or alternatively, a Court Order compelling the management of IAM and Company to immediately comply with the police demand?

Now they will want to lock me up for calling them DUNCES but police like that should be literally shot with shit and run out of town for their stupidity and incompetence.
