Police Chief still awaiting Coroner’s report on Shemar Weekes

One month after Coroner Manila Renee handed down her judgment in the unnatural death of 12-year-old Shemar Weekes, Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith is yet to receive a formal report on the matter.

At the conclusion of the coroner’s inquiry on Monday, August 22, Renee had said she would be dispatching her findings to the top cop that same week, to allow for a continuation of the criminal investigation into the matter.

However, a check with the Commissioner’s office this afternoon revealed that he was not yet in possession of the coroner’s report, even though her office told Barbados TODAY yesterday the document had been sent off,  but did not say when.

Shemar was found hanging at his Fryers Well, St Lucy home on May 14 last year. His death was ruled a suicide by a pathologist. However, the Coroner dismissed the pathologist’s opinion, calling it a “fallacy”.

    An interesting case…er?.. wonder….Rum’n’Koke up to it?Atson. Logically, the solution is simply achieved by deduction-
    Any oneone of these is the culprit:-
    1. There is no gas available for the police motor-cycle courier., Or
    2. The G.P.O. Folks are on strike.
    3. The file is lost….disappeared in a puff of smoke.
    4. The file has been – carefully- just te,proration , misplaced.
    5. Someone made a phone-cam twosome person else.
    6. The building where the file was last located, has sunk into a sink-hole, like an Arch-Cot thing, fever to be seen again.
    7. It has arrived, but is awaiting its turn, for relevant attention, at an indeterminate future time, like on the 30th November, when evahbody will be very, very, happy,…and could not care less about a file.

    Your pick, Watson.
