Police search on for man who may aid with La Brea murder investigation

Police are searching for Roger Mathison, who they believe may be able to help them in their inquiries into the murders of four persons in La Brea.

Mathison, from Gonzales Village, La Brea, police said, is a PH driver and usually worked the La Brea to Point Fortin route.

The bodies of the four persons, including two teenage girls, were found at a home in Kanhai Settlement, La Brea, on Tuesday night.


The deceased are 69-year-old Michael Scott, and his tenants, School teacher Abigail Chapman, 42, her 15-year-old daughter Olivia, and Olivia’s 14-year-old friend Michaela Mason.

Two boys, aged 12 and eight, who were at home during the incident, were unharmed.

Police believe Abigail Chapman was the target of the attack and the suspect is a former companion.

It was noted that recently Chapman had made a report to police alleging that she had been abused, and that the matter was under investigation when she was killed.

It was said that last Thursday, the man had come to the home and pulled a knife on the 42-year-old woman.
