Man to be charged with murder
A 31-YEAR-OLD St James man is expected to be charged today with the murder of Patrina Lord.
The decomposed body of Lord, 31, of Lodge Terrace, St Michael, was found in a cart road on Monday night just off Content Road, St Thomas, five days after she disappeared.
She had returned to her home just a stone’s throw from her boyfriend’s residence after attending the funeral of suicide victim and Barbados Defence Force soldier Adrian Greenidge.
A post-mortem is to be conducted on Lord today.
Initial investigations have indicated Lord suffered head injuries from a severe beating.
Police nabbed the St James suspect early Monday after he was spotted by Lord’s brother Leroy Lord walking along Cane Garden Main Road in St Thomas.
Investigators had also questioned Patrina’s twin Patricia Lord, but sources told the DAILY NATION last night she had been cleared of any involvement in her sister’s death.
Tuesday night, residents of Lodge Terrace, St Michael, and family members held a candlelight vigil for Patrina.
