St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Public Inquiries into the deaths of a Customs Officer and a Stonefort resident, in two separate incidents last September 2020, are still pending some eight months later.
That’s the word from Police Commissioner Hilroy Brandy who responded to a question from WINN about the inquiries at the Prime Minister’s Press Conference Thursday,
“The two cases are still pending before the court,” was the only response offered by the Police Commissioner.
Twenty-one-year-old Customs Officer Andrew Douglas was found dead with a single gunshot wound to the head on September 17th, 2020 at the Customs Department in Bird Rock.
The circumstances of his death sparked widespread public concern and speculation and questions remain unanswered about the incident.
Stoneforts resident Sandra Adams, 59, was found “unresponsive” at her home on September 26 with a cord around her neck, according to police. Her death was ruled a suicide but questions remain about the circumstances of her death.
