The top officer said colleagues from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force are presently conducting a peer review of the evidence collected and the case. The Trinidad & Tobago police have also been assisting with forensic analysis and supporting Montserratian officers which were sent to the island nations several times over the course of Allen being in hospital.
