Police have made a breakthrough in the investigation into last year’s murder of an employee of telecommunications company LIME.
They now have a suspect in custody for Moreta Forde’s death.
Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch confirmed to Barbados TODAY that when the man was detained in a rural area he told officers that he had ingested a poisonous substance.
He was subsequently taken for treatment.
Police believe he is responsible for killing 53-year-old Forde who was found with her throat slashed in her Fisher Pond, St Thomas home which had been set on fire.
