Inquest Into Pastor’s Death Adjourned

The Coroner’s Inquest into the death of Rev. Dr. Kendall Stubbs was adjourned last week to July.

The matter was expected to continue on April 8 and 9.

When the matter continues it is expected that a scenes of crime officer and the pathologist will testify.

Stubbs’ wife, Carolyn has already testified in the matter.

Stubbs died on November 3, 2012 after being struck by a truck during his church’s fun run walk.

During her testimony, Carolyn told the court that she identified her husband on November 5, 2012.

She said the last time she had seen the Remnant Tabernacle of Praise pastor was earlier that morning at the Coral Harbour roundabout and that he was in good health and ready to run.

Stubbs did however tell coroner Jeanine Weech-Gomez that her husband was being treated for hypertension and high cholesterol and as a result exercised at least three times a week and changed his diet to fish and vegetables only.

He also was on medication as a result.

She also revealed that he took medication for his ailments and saw his doctor – whom she only identified as Dr. Gray – annually.

The pastor’s wife also told the court that several days after the accident occurred she met with Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade, who told her that in his mind the accident was indeed a hit and run and not to be mindful of what she was seeing in the press.

She also spoke to two certificates being produced.

The first one said that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head and torso caused by a motor vehicle while the second certificate had the cause of death as blunt force trauma to the head and torso and severe coronary artery disease.

When questioned by the two woman three man jury, Mrs. Stubbs further revealed that she couldn’t say whether her husband took medication or ate before he left for the fun run walk.

She also told them that she was concerned after two death certificates were released and explained that it was at that time when she sought legal counsel and questioned former coroner Linda Virgill about the legality of two certificates being issued.
