Probe Continues Into Inmates’ Death

The identity of the man who died while in police custody remains a mystery and the Commissioner of Police is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the inmate.

It was this past weekend when a police report revealed that a man had died in custody but the details were very sketchy.

In fact, officers remained tight-lipped on the whereabouts of the inmates’ death.

However, during a press conference at the Police Headquarters on Thursday, Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade addressed the issue.

“I can’t say because I’m not the pathologist or a medical doctor to say precisely why he died except to say that there was an in custody death at the Wulff Road Police Station which is the North Eastern Division, the press was properly given a brief that once we were told that there was a person in a cell, locked in a cell and I repeat locked in a cell on Saturday past, the body was left undisturbed,” he said.

“At the time there were a number of independent witnesses in that cell block sensible Bahamians who saw precisely what had happen prior to the alarm being sounded that something was wrong in the cell block.”

Meantime Commissioner Greenslade added that the picture of the man will be taken and circulated for the public’s assistance in identifying the inmate.

He assured that an independent investigation by the Her Majesty’s Coroner has been launched into this matter.
