THERE IS A GREAT CHANCE police will soon crack another murder case, says Acting Commissioner of Police Erwin Boyce.
During a press conference at the police headquarters in Roebuck Street, Bridgetown, yesterday, he said three out of five murders for 2020 had been solved as far as bringing charges. He added this was a testament to investigators who were relentless in their efforts.
“We have never taken off our gloves in the fight of crime and we will never take off our gloves in the fight of crime. The ones that have not been solved are actively being pursued. In some instances, there is light at the end of the tunnel for some.
“Three were solved and the possibility exists that we might solve a fourth in a not too distant time,” Boyce said.
In relation to the record 49 murders in 2019, the senior lawman said that 60 per cent of them had been solved, and once Barbadians continued to offer them support, police would be able to do their jobs. (TG)
