A JAMAICAN man who was serving a three-year sentence for importing drugs into Barbados died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) last Tuesday.
Reports indicated that 25-year-old Deshawn George Campbell complained of feeling unwell last Monday and was rushed from Her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds to the hospital.
A source close to the situation said Campbell had been complaining of feeling ill since July and had been prescribed painkillers at the prison.
“We will have to wait for an autopsy to be carried out to determine the cause of death,” the source stated, pointing out that the matter had been drawn to the attention of Jamaica’s High Commissioner to Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, Sharon Saunders, who is resident in Port of Spain.
