The long-awaited autopsy on the body of 12-year-old Shemar Weekes of Checker Hall, St Lucy, is to be done next week, says Assistant Commissioner of Police Mark Thompson.
ACP Thompson told Barbados TODAY this morning that the forensic expert, Dr Sainagendra Persad Kadiyala from Jamaica, arrives in Barbados tonight from Kingston.
“The autopsy will hopefully be done on Monday,” the senior police official added.
The process was started by the QEH’s Clinical Pathologist Dr Stephen Jones on May 18. However, about an hour and a half into the procedure, it was halted as officials thought it necessary to employ the services of someone with forensic expertise.
Shemar was found hanging in the yard of the house he shared with his mother Julianne Weekes and seven-year-old brother Shaquon on May 14.
