British national who died in Barbados identified

The British national who was stabbed to death in Barbados last weekend was a former Iraqi war veteran and father of two, according to a story published in Tuesday’s Daily Mail of the UK.

The paper reported that Brian Mulligan, 28, was on a six month contract to Barbados working as a telecoms engineer at LIME when he became involved in an early morning dispute with a “suspected drug dealer”.

Brian Mulligan had arrived in Barbados eight weeks ago

This after local lawmen reported at the weekend that a British national, whose name was being withheld, was involved in an altercation with a local man in Dover, Christ Church when he was stabbed in his chest.

However, in detailed report, the UK publication said the former machine gunner was rushed to hospital at 5.30am on Sunday morning after being stabbed in the chest in St Lawrence Gap but he died from his injuries.

Originally from Forest Hill in South-East London, the paper said Mulligan had served as a soldier for eight years and completed tours of Iraq, Afghanistan and Northern Ireland before being medically discharged two years ago.

Colleagues revealed that he had ‘served with distinction’ and had been ranked tenth out of 360 men in a contest that involved an endurance march and shooting.

Mulligan’s army career ended prematurely when he led a charge into an Iraqi house. An enemy grenade exploded close to him and permanently damaged his hearing, the paper reported.
After his discharge, he became a telecoms engineer, installing cables at Heathrow Airport’s new Terminal 2.

Mulligan flew to Barbados with other British engineers eight weeks ago to begin a project, leaving his wife Jenna, 28, and children aged seven and four, behind in Ashtead, Surrey, the Daily Mail added.

      That’s nonsense. 5:30 and a drug dealer involved. Yes, tourists should surely be desperately afraid.

    What an awful thing to happen to a family man and a war hero.
    Our thoughts are with his family.
    Someone knows the coward who did this and is protecting him.

    Why was no ambulance available at 5.30 in the morning?
