Orlando Griffith said that a few days ago he had a strong feeling “trouble” was about to take place in his Walkers, St Andrew community – and yesterday his worst fears became reality.
While Barbadians were enjoying Independence Day celebrations, the peace of that eastern community was shattered when three men were slashed to death after a conflict, which Griffith said had been brewing for some time, came to a tragic end.
Dead are neighbours Cecil Webb, a 49-year-old farmer and NIFCA award-winning artisan; Terry Small, who was in his late 40s; and 48-year-old Lennox Browne.
According to neighbours, the tragedy began around 8:40 a.m. with Browne attacking Webb with a cutlass as he was feeding his livestock in the yard. (TG)
