Fresh killing

woman’s body found partially naked

Police detectives accompanied by search dogs, combed the fields at Jordan, St George for evidence this evening after the sister of a top senior police officer was discovered dead.

As word spread, a large gathering of distraught family members and lawmen gathered at the scene where the body of Malanese Eversley, sister of acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Livingstone Eversley, was found partially naked in a grassy area next to the roadway, just around 12:15 p.m.

Acting Police Public Relations Officer, Station Sergeant Roland Cobbler, said the discovery was made by members of the Barbados Fire Service who had responded to a blaze very close to where the body was found.

Barbados TODAY understands that the deceased, 60, left home early this morning to go to work in Christ Church. It was reported that when a relative called for her at her workplace, the family member was informed that she had not yet arrived.

Shocked and grief stricken relatives were unable to speak to the media. The screams and cries of some could be heard in the distance. One distraught relative had to be physically supported before she fell to the ground.

The deceased’s two sons, who were surrounded by loved ones, patiently and quietly waited until the OK was given
for them to view her body before it was taken away.

Acting ACP Eversley, who is in charge of crime, appeared composed throughout, interacting with investigators periodically. The hurt, however, was visibly etched on his face and he said that it was difficult for him to speak.

Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith, who came from the funeral service of the relative of another officer to offer support and comfort to his colleague, expressed condolences to Eversley’s family on behalf of the Royal Barbados Police Force.

“We are going to do everything in our power to try to find out who is the perpetrator of the crime and take action. Obviously, my colleague would be devastated and I want to give him my full condolences on behalf of the force,” Griffith said.

Other senior officers also turned out in their numbers. Appeals Court Judge Sandra Mason also stopped by and offered her condolences to the acting assistant commissioner.

Eversley’s friend of 20 years, Winston Daniel, said he was tremendously affected by the death of the woman whom he described as “a quiet lady” who did not deserve to die this way.

Daniel explained that he would often give Eversley a ride on mornings whenever he was driving by and saw her walking down that same road.

“Usually I would see her, but I did not see her this morning. She was really quiet and reserved. She did not deserve this; nobody deserves this,” Daniel said.

Eversley was the latest person to die violently here as the country is gripped by a spate of crime. It was only last night that Prime Minister Freundel Stuart appealed to Barbadians to support efforts by the authorities to fight “this burgeoning problem” of violent crime, and described as cowards those who exhibit “blatant disregard” for people’s lives.

In a message to mark today’s fifth anniversary of the Campus Trendz fire which claimed the lives of six young women, the Prime Minister observed that in the year since the last commemoration, “an alarming number of citizens” had either died or had become disabled as a result of increasing acts of violence, the level to which Barbadians were not accustomed.

“In view of this, it is vital that all Barbadians lend support to the efforts of the authorities as they seek to tackle this burgeoning problem and to bring to justice those who, through their cowardly actions, have exhibited a blatant disregard for human life. In addition, we must also be resolute in our efforts to convince this small group of individuals in the society that violence does not solve problems,” Stuart said.

The Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) has appealed to anyone with information on the latest killing to contact the police hotline at 211, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS or the nearest police station.

    My sincere condolences to her family, friends and colleagues. May her soul rest in eternal peace. Please Lord let the police find the person who has taken her life as soon as possible before they strike again. This is so, so sad. Too many violent crimes in Barbados.

This is never going to end while you have judges handing out such pathetic sentences, criminals are not scared a few years in Dodds means nothing when your a young man, life HAS to mean life if you wont hang, to know you wont ever walk free again might just deter some

    Really hard when innocent people are having their lives taken from them. I offer my condolences. The police are doing their best but this government with it’s soft stance on crime and criminals is paving the way for these violent acts.

    The AG prefer to house murderers at her majesty Dodds and feed them at the taxes payers expense. This tells me we no longer have the power to govern our people. The real power is with the IADB, The IMF and other money lending agencies who request we no longer fullfill the wishes of our people when it comes to capital punishment. If these murderers knew they would lose their lives when they kill someone, they would think twice.

    What is happening in our beautiful country? Where is this all coming from? Is it that we have forsaken ourselves and allowed the ‘world’ to take over?
    Are we still willing to say, we are a better people? WHERE is God that have been with us and we with Him in years past? Have we listened too long to those who prefer to cast Him off?
    Can we honestly say that the taking on of the worldly and its ugly in the name of ‘development’ or whatever we call it has paid a good price? Are we better for it? Like ‘big’ countries, have the value of life been lost to us now?

    @Mike!!!!! Finally someone is making the same connection as i am, but we could change all this if we start Borrowing the money we need from China ( Li Keqiang) Russia (Vladimir Putin). Singapore has no problem Hanging Drug Dealers/Runners, Murderers, etc, as they don’t have to BEG the IADB, IMF,World Bank et al for anything. Meanwhile there have been 20 Executions in the USA for the Year 2015, 10 (50%) in Texas alone. and not a word from ANYONE.
    It is time that the People of Barbados step up to the plate, and FORCE the Government of Barbados to do the RIGHT thing, and reinstate HANGING.
    Some EDUCATEWD FOOLS say that Hanging is NOT a deterrent, they are WRONG, the Person that is Hanged IS deterred from Committing any more Crimes, as he would now be 6 ft. under, that to me is a Great deterrent.

    @Charles Worrell!!!!! you ask “”Can we honestly say that the taking on of the worldly and its ugly in the name of ‘development’ or whatever we call it has paid a good price? Are we better for it? Like ‘big’ countries, have the value of life been lost to us now?”” My answers are NO, NO, YES.

    Charles Worrell,

    We may have to re-think the CSME agreement. We have also to pay attention to what is about to happen on 23rd September. It may be the unfolding of more demonic forces in the world – the world is impacting on us, so you can imagine what will be happening within our little island. Anger and spite have possessed the minds of many of our people. Our law enforcement officers may have to finds ways and means of guarding their loved ones. I read a comment by someone a few weeks ago that warned the Police about their own “funerals”. i

    We have to be careful. Our island is not what it used to be in times before. We seem to be on par with the results of devilish acts that were once regarded as happening in the outside world. Those happenings are on our doorsteps.

    No one cares anymore about the life of another, because, it is known that if you murder someone the most that will be done to you will be to lock you away in prison to get fat and in time be able to walk about the prison with a bunch a keys because of your good behaviour. So, you take the life of someone and then go and sit down safely in prison without a care of whether the sun shines or the rain falls.

    Our Pastors who are supposed to be Warfare Fighters / Teachers / Counsellors within the church, seem to have found comfort in being evangelists / preachers. Pastors need to begin Warfare on the demonic forces in our land that have invaded the minds of many persons – old and young.

    Pastors, do not wait until it gets on your doorstep to begin the fight. It is time to cease the denial of the power with which God has endowed you. Your role as a Pastor is to do Warfare for God against satanic forces. Do what you have to do and let the Evangelists do the preaching only. As a Pastor your focus is to be on Warfare. God’s power is mighty. We can overcome the world even though we hear of calamity that may be coming upon us from 23rd September. Our God Yahereh will have the final say, not CERN.
