Fourteen years after one of the most horrific tragedies in Barbados, Shirley Linton still feels as if she is the voice crying in the wilderness.

Her daughter Cassandra Codrington, husband Donavere and three young children, Shaquanda, Shaquille and Yashiro, perished when the apartment building where they lived collapsed into a hole beneath it, on August 26, 2007.

Linton, of Chapman Lane, The City, who has been raising the couples’ surviving child Donnya, now 14, is upset that seven years after she and nine other family members filed a lawsuit against six parties involved in the crash, there has been no indication of a settlement and no movement on the case. (MB)
