An Indian doctor who assisted at a post-mortem on a woman in Port of Spain, Trinidad, failed to tell the authorities that the corpse was that of his own German-born wife Inge, and that he had murdered her himself.

Dr. Dalip Singh married Inge after qualifying in Scotland, but the marriage was a disaster.

He killed her after a terrible row on April 6th, 1954, put the body in a sack and drove 40 miles to Godinot Bay where he threw the sack into the sea. The body, however, came out of the sack and soon appeared on the beach.

In the morgue Dr. Singh said he had no idea who the woman was, but his servants told the police a different story. He was hanged at Port of Spain Prison on Tuesday, June 28th, 1955.
