Two men from Long Island are still in custody in connection with the murder of two women who were murdered on that island last week, Chief Superintendent Solomon Cash said yesterday.
Cash said the men were assisting police with their investigation.
The bodies of Melissa Hui, 34, and her mother, Jane Harding, 62, were unearthed on Friday on a beach in Salt Pond, Long Island.
By Saturday morning, flowers lined the doorstep of the small cottage the pair shared.
The saga that shook up the typically quiet island began on Wednesday morning when Hui didn’t show up for work at Long Island Petroleum, a gas station just a few hundred feet from her home.
Hui’s concerned employers asked a relative who lives nearby to check on her. He found the house with nothing missing except the two women.
Their car was still parked outside. Harding’s walking stick was still in the home and a cup of tea was untouched.
A team of police and community members searched relentlessly for two days before the gruesome discovery was made.
