Coroner wants Police Commissioner to further investigate Shemar Weekes’ death

The unnatural death of 12-year-old Shemar Weekes has been sent back to the Commissioner of Police for further investigation.

Coroner Manila Renee this afternoon said because of the evidence before her she could not rule that Weekes’ death was an accident as is the normal role of a coroner’ s inquest.

She said because of the inconsistencies and contradictions in the evidence of the main characters in the case, the matter would be better dealt with by a criminal jurisdiction.

The Coroner said she was therefore adjourning the case and sending her findings to the Commissioner of Police in a couple days for them to further investigate the evidence, which she noted had revealed that someone had a case to answer.

The Coroner explained that it was possible the matter could return to her and on that basis she would not give a final verdict.

She questioned the forensic pathologist’s report, which said Shemar committed suicide.

The Coroner noted that under the law, suicide had to be established beyond any shadow of doubt pointing out that a second person could be held liable either through an act committed that led to the suicide or not acting in a way that could prevent it.

Shemar’s mother Julieanne Weekes, who was in court this afternoon broke down in tears when the coroner was describing the noose by which the boy is alleged to have used to kill himself.

The former Coleridge & Parry student was found hanging at his Fryer’s Well, Checker Hall, St Lucy home on May 14, 2015.

        You’re mixing up the cases. 6 year old Jahan King’s mother and her boyfriend were in jail. Shemar Weeke’s mother was never jailed for his death.

    That is why I love that coroner hear.. She ain’t nobody fool.. The mother want lossing way, the case workers at CCB want charging with manslaughter or accessory or something and the CCB want suing.. I still can’t believe she had the nerve to tell the police that she find she child hanging and ain’t raise no alarm cause she and the neighbors don’t speak.. I know ppl enough that neighbors don’t speak to them til this day but when lives were at risk and medical assistance was needed hatred went on a lil holiday, the neighbors was out in full force to help and the animosity resumed once the danger pass #RIPShemar #WeWantJustice

      Yes!! If they are made to suffer some real consequences for the lackadaisical attitude that they have towards their jobs and these children lives maybe they would finally start doing some actual work for their money and start doing what they are being paid to do.. PROTECTING THESE CHILDREN!!!

    I trust that “relevant’ passports have either been taken into custody for “safe-keeping”, or that appropriate names have been added to our “NO FLY”, and “NO SAIL” lists at our respective ports. There should be no easy way out for ANYONE connected with this horrific tragedy.
