Cedenio released without charge as probe into woman's death continues

By October 04, 2018

Trinidad and Tobago athlete Machel Cedenio, who has been under investigation in a suspected case of hit and run, was on Thursday, released from police custody.

The athlete has not been charged but the investigations into the death of a 55-year-old Lenora Patrick is continuing, police said. Patrick was believed killed during a hit and run accident on July 1 in Tobago. A jogger discovered her body in a drain on July 4.

On Sunday, September 30, Cedenio, 23, accompanied by his lawyer turned himself to the police and an identification parade was scheduled for Monday, October 1. SportsMax.TV has learned that the identification parade was not held prior to the athlete’s release.

Cedenio seemed to confirm his release with a post on his Twitter account at 9:33 am Thursday.

“They were happy to report I walked into a police station with my lawyer for questioning etc. but…they weren’t as eager to report I walked out uncharged with a cleared name.”

Tweets on the athlete’s account have since been deleted.
