Break in case
A MAN was in police custody last night after reportedly admitting he was responsible for the death of 12-year-old Rashida Bascombe, who went missing 11 years ago.
According to sources close to the investigation, the fate of the suspect is expected to be decided by the Director of Public Prosecutions after a review of his confession is carried out. They also indicated that the man was known to Rashida.
Bascombe’s disappearance had led to an islandwide search for the student who had left her grandparents’ home after 8 p.m. on January 2, 2002.
Her grandfather, Whitfield Nurse, had told the DAILY NATION then of unsuccessfully searching for her after he realized she had not returned home.
