Sherris Stringham Died from Traumatic Asphyxia

Joseph Myvett

The Hopkins community is stunned at the murder of Sherris Stringham, who by all accounts was well-liked in the village, where a memorial is being organized for later this week, pending the arrival of her relatives. A post-mortem conducted on Stringham’s decomposing body concludes that she died from traumatic asphyxia.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett shares more on what they have found out so far about the chilling murder of the American woman, whose body was found on Friday night, almost a week after she went missing.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“The body was removed from there where a post-mortem was conducted where she died from traumatic asphyxia. As a result, police have since arrested and charged eighteen-year-old Wilhem Nunez and eighteen-year-old Anthony Nunez and a sixteen year old minor for the crime of murder.”



“Is it the belief of the investigators, based on the condition of the body found, that she had been killed on the day of her disappearance?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Yes, we do believe that was the case based on the investigation.”



“Was she killed in a home investigation or aggravated burglary as it is called?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Yes, the house was indeed burglarized where she was taken from the home and then later on she was transported to where the body was found.”



“You all believe that she was taken from the home alive or that she was killed in the home and then?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“We do not know that at this point in time. We are still currently investigating this matter.”
