Police mum on Gillian Bayne investigation

A senior police officer has downplayed reports of a breakthrough in the Gillian Bayne murder investigation.

The decomposed body of the 18-year-old former Barbados Community College (BCC) student was discovered at the bottom of a 70-foot well at Groves Plantation, four days after she disappeared from her Kirtons, St Philip home on August 12, 1996.gillian-bayne-

However, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police responsible for Crime Livingstone Eversley said today he was not in a position to corroborate reports that the man held at the weekend in connection with the disappearance of 75-year-old Marcelle Smith, was also a suspect in Bayne’s murder.

“I am not aware of this. There is nothing to tell that is like that,” the crime chief said.  (EJ)

    If the reading is correct , then it look like a “new investigation team” now handling the “cold case files”.
    We all hope you find it possible to open the “cane field murders” files.

    Ppl…the accused is around 36 -37. He would have been between 18-19 or so when it happened.
