Anthony Giddings

A post morten examination conducted on the body of Anthony Giddings revealed that the forty-five year old man died as a result of shock and hemorrhage due to stab wound to the left lungs.

The autopsy was done on Monday morning at the New Amsterdam Hospital by government pathologist, Dr. Vivekanand Bridgemohan. Giddings was stabbed to death on Friday last at his Lot 14 Pitt Street, New Amsterdam home by the woman he once shared a relationship with for several years now. The suspect has been identified as forty-three-year old, Anita Hannuman.

Giddings and Hannuman shared an intimate relationship for a number of years and are known to have constant arguments from time to time. According to neighbours, the duo would often fight and threaten each other.
An initial report from the police stated that around 01:30 hrs Friday Anita and Giddings were involved in an argument during which he pulled out a knife and threatened to stab and kill the woman. As a result she ran out the house but Giddings followed her. The woman said in an attempt to defend herself, she took the knife away from Giddings and stabbed him twice to his chest.

Giddings father, seventy-two year old Hubert Giddings told reporters on Friday morning that he knew his son and the woman were having problems and that they were always nagging at each other, even outside of their home.
“Is nah nothing that I don’t know about them two because they does be all on the road quarreling with each other. I got the message around 4 AM this morning and I went to the police station and did what I had to do.”


When asked about the claims Anita made against Giddings that he previously broke her arms, the elderly man said he does not know anything about that since he lives far away from them. “I won’t be afraid to tell you if I know but as I told you before, both of them always fighting all over the place and people told me that last night they deh on the road fighting and one gate knife and the other get wood.”

In April last year, the couple had a misunderstanding and Hannuman set their lot 14-33 Pitt Street home on fire. The house was unoccupied for a few years since the owner died, as such Giddings and Hannuman had moved in to live.

After the couple were left homeless, they then took up residency at another abandoned house through the same street, about four houses away from where they previously lived.
