Blood clot cited as cause of Fyfield’s death

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - POLICE yesterday (Apr. 3) stated that they are investigating the incident that resulted in the death of 38-year-old Keon Fyfield of Newtown on Monday (Mar. 29). 
    SKNVibes understands that Fyfield was hospitalised for sometime after sustaining injuries in what media reports suggested was a car accident in the St. Peter’s area. 
    Following his death, an autopsy was performed on his body by Resident Pathologist, Dr. Adrian Nuñez, who concluded that death was as a result of “pulmonary embolism due to prolonged bed rest as a consequence of severe head trauma with cerebral concussion”. 
    Mayoclinic describes pulmonary embolism as “a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in your lungs. In most cases, pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel to the lungs from deep veins in the legs or, rarely, from veins in other parts of the body (deep vein thrombosis)”.
    The police are asking anyone with information regarding this matter to contact the Violent Crime Unit by dialling 467-1887, 467-1888, 662-3468, their nearest police station or the Crime Hotline at 707 where information could be given anonymously.
