Cop found hanging
THE SUSPECTED SUICIDE of a 44-year-old police constable who was attached to the Canine Unit has thrown the Royal Barbados Police Force into mourning.
It was a sombre scene at Work Hall, St Philip yesterday as former colleagues, including head of the Canine Unit Wayne McGeary, and officers from various divisions huddled together in various spots close to the home of Philip Greaves (below), whose body was found hanging by relatives around 12:30 p.m.
Greaves was in the force for about 13 years.
While he could not say when last Greaves was on the job or how long he had not been heard from, police public relations officer, acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch, said the PC’s family was concerned and went looking for him.
President of the Police Association, David Alleyne, was also at the scene and spoke to the loss. (YB)
