FULL STORY:Tragic end for Patrina

THE FIVE-DAY SEARCH for Patrina Lord has ended tragically.
The 31-year-old, whose disappearance last Wednesday shocked Barbadians, was found dead in a cart road just off Content Road that leads to St Thomas Parish Church, around nine last night.
Family members who gathered at the scene were overcome with grief, and some were overheard remarking on the senselessness of her death.
Assistant Commissioner (Crime) Seymour Cumberbatch confirmed the discovery of Lord’s decomposing body, but said he could not give further details.
However, other police sources told the DAILY NATION that her body showed evidence of a beating. They also disclosed that a St James man, who is known to the family, was assisting with investigations into the death.
It is believed that the suspect, who was taken into custody yesterday morning, led police detectives to the location of the body. Lord, of Lodge Terrace, St Michael, left her boyfriend’s house around 1 p.m. last Wednesday to return to work at LIME in Windsor Lodge, St Michael, but never showed up.
Her boyfriend Adrian Archer, who lives a stone’s throw away from Lord, a former student of Alexandra School, said he made several calls to her two cell phones but they went unanswered.
Over the last several days, there were conflicting stories concerning the whereabouts of Lord, who has a twin sister, with some suggesting her disappearance could have been the result of a family dispute turned fatally sour.
A post-mortem is expected to be conducted today to determine the exact cause of death.
