BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - BASED on information from the Commissioner of Police, Attorney-General Garth Wilkin has revealed that the Coroner’s Inquests into two deaths that made national headlines are underway.
During the Prime Minister’s press conference yesterday ( Jan. 18), Wilkin was asked for an update on the Inquest, to which he revealed that based on information relayed by the Top Cop, the Inquest into the death of then 21-year-old Customs Officer, Andrew Douglas “began last year and it was adjourned over the holidays and it will continue”.
Douglas, a resident of Molineaux, was found dead at Customs Headquarters in 2020, and an autopsy report stated that death was a result of severe traumatic brain injury caused by a single gunshot wound to the head.
According to AG Wilkin, when that one is completed in the Magistrate Court the other Inquest would then proceed.
The other Inquest is that of Sandra Adams who was found dead at her home in 2020.
However, no word has been given on the Inquest into the shooting-death of then wanted man Vincent Taylor by the police.
Police, back in 2018, reported that Taylor was killed during an exchange of gunfire between himself and members of the Police Force.
