Assistant Commissioner of Police responsible for Crime Management and Investigations, Mark Thompson, told Barbados TODAY a forensic specialist will arrive in the island on Friday to finish the procedure on the 12-year-old, who was found hanging in the yard of his Checker Hall, St Lucy home on May 14.   

The autopsy was started by clinical pathologist Dr David Gaskin on May 18. An hour and a half into the procedure, it was halted after police officials determined that a more scientific approach was required to ensure the integrity of the results.

While insisting that the forensic pathologist was not from neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago as was reported in another section of the electronic media, Thompson promised to provide details once the expert was here.

The boy’s mother Julianne Weekes declined to comment on this latest news.

    sad, i still think about this little boy, every child should be given a chance in live, and to those kids who blame their parents now they are grown? i say, at least you are alive. Sadly there will be no justice for this kid.
