Woman’s body found

The decomposed body of a St Philip woman was found this morning in her house.

According to police public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch, the body of the woman, whose name was not released and is who is said to be in her 50’s, was found in her home located in the Crane, St Philip.

When asked if the death was being treated as unnatural, Welch told Barbados TODAY an autopsy would first have to be carried out.

He said investigations were continuing into the matter.

“She was found in a state of decomposition at her house this morning in the Crane, St Philip. Right now we are not in a position to say what the cause of death is. An autopsy will first have to be carried out to determine the cause of death,” Welch noted.

    I take it she had no relatives at the house cuz i believe someone should’ve recognized her absence and as its partially decomposed, surely means a couple days have passed since her death. I do hope it wasn’t a murder..#rip

    We are slowly becoming like our North American neighbours, who don’t even know who lives next door. I make it a point to check on my neighbours on a regular basis. I can only presume that this lady lived alone and perhaps kept to herself. Hope her death was by natural causes and not fowl play related. May she rest in peace.

    @jrsmith!!!! of course this would NOT have happened 50 years ago, but please don’t forget, we have ADVANCED in life, we are well Educated and we are punching above our weight, trying to live the lifestyle of the Rich and Famous, is way more important than looking in on our neighbours, especially if they are ELDERLY.

    @Veejay!!!! NO!!!! we are not slowly becoming like North Americans, we HAVE become like North American, we have an avaricious appetite for material things, to the point where both Men and Women are selling their Bodies to satisfy their material urges (Designer Clothes, Cellphone top ups, et al.)

    This is not the first time this has happened, and it will not be the last time. may the Good Lord Bless and keep us all.
