They are one year old Jabarie Cadogan and his four year old sister Odaceia Cadogan. The boy died at the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital and the girl succcumbed at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
Their mother, Awena Rutherford, was alive and was being treated for poisoning that she allegedly ingested in a bid to commit suicide.
She had Thursday afternoon collected the children from their aunt at Anns Grove, East Coast Demerara. Her parting words were that she had a surprise for her sister and so she would not say what it was.
Some time after, the sister at Anns Grove said she received a call that she should go to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital. There, the boy already passed away.
Demerara Waves Online News was told that Awena Rutherford might have become frustrated due to strained relations with her the children’s New York-based father, Jabarie Cadogan Snr. The woman had said that no one else could take care of her children and she preferred to die along with them.
Cadogan Snr. was only recently preparing to send a box of items for his children. Now, he is about to fly to Guyana to find out exactly what went wrong with the children he loved very much.
