Strangulation indicated but no other blunt force trauma, Forensic report not to be released ’til Weekend (almost 1 Month since Shemar Weekes’ demise)

As promised by the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF), the post mortem in respect of Shemar Weekes was completed Monday 1st June 2015 by Forensic Pathologist Dr. Sainagendra Prasad Kadiyala. I received a brief from Dr. Sainagendra Prasad Kadiyala about 4.00 pm Monday and he promised to submit his written report by weekend.

The legal and legitimate authority to publicly disclose the findings of a post mortem falls within the domain of the enquiring agency, specifically the Coroner's Office and not the investigating agency the RBPF.

Nevertheless, the latter statement should suggest to all that it is more likely that at the conclusion of the investigation, the file will be submitted to the Coroner’s Office as opposed to the Director of Public Prosecutions’ Office, which (EDITOR’s TRANSLATION: indicates the case may be that of a regrettable suicide and not necessarily one of a brutal┬ámurder).
