Fish vendor’s death classified as suicide
An autopsy on the body of 30-year-old fishmonger Jason Lord said yesterday he died as a result of asphyxia consistent with suicide. The post-mortem was performed by forensic pathologist Dr Valery Alexandrov at the Forensic Science Centre in St James.
According to investigators, Lord was found hanging by his belt from a rafter in a holding cell at the station on Calvary Hill, San Juan. Lord was arrested earlier that day at his Laventille Road, San Juan, home by officers who were executing a court-ordered warrant for more than $32,000 in outstanding child maintenance.
Following his death, several of his relatives visited the station and reportedly engaged in violet confrontation with investigators, who they claimed should be held responsible for his death. ASP Mahabir of the North Eastern Division is probing the incident which has now been officially classified by homicide detectives as a suicide.
