Murder in Crystal Heights
A 43-YEAR-OLD St James contractor is Barbados’ latest murder victim.
The body of Aubrey Buntin, a Guyanese national, was found in a pool of blood yesterday morning at the entrance of his home at No. 229 Marquis Boulevard, Crystal Heights, Clermont, St Michael.
The dreadlocked man, believed to be the victim of a robbery, suffered several gunshot wounds to the upper body.
Police sources said Buntin, almost seven feet tall, might have struggled with his killer.
Neighbours who said Buntin had only moved into the district about three weeks ago reported hearing gunfire around 5 a.m.
Among those arriving at the scene was Buntin’s wife Whitney, accompanied by their two small children. (TS)
