The Royal Barbados Police Force is investigating the unnatural death of a man who was found hanging in a cell at Holetown Police Station, St James, over the weekend.

Police say the body of 43-year-old Colin MacDonald Greene of Chalky Mount, St Andrew was discovered around midnight on Saturday by officers who were making “routine checks and interviews of suspects in custody who were kept in the cells”.

“On the officers’ initial discovery, checks for a sign of life were made and none was found, a medical doctor was immediately summoned and after his examination, he pronounced death,” a media release said.

Greene “first came into police custody” on November 2 and was assessed by the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Unit. He reportedly tested positive for the virus and was treated at an isolation centre.

He was later released into police custody on November 13th 2021 and transported to the Holetown Station. (PR/SAT)
