COP: Trevor Douglas investigation out of Police hands

The circumstances surrounding Trevor Douglas' shooting death remain shrouded in mystery

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN):  The investigation into the death of a man reportedly shot by police, is entirely out of the hands of the Force says Commissioner CG Walwyn. 

Commissioner of Police C.G. Walwyn"We had a very thorough investigation.  I've seen and heard a lot of things in the media with regard to some of the issues that we have found were never raised, and because it's an active investigation we can't discuss what they are.  We did however, turn our findings over to the DDP's office...whatever they decide, we'll have to go along with, but they will have to make that determination.  It's no longer for me to say or do anything until they come back," Commissioner Walwyn told WINN FM this past week.

Back in May, Ricky Rouphine , the brother of the late Trevor Douglas wrote to the Commissioner expressing concern that the family had learned via the media, that the investigation into the shooting death had been completed.   The family has appealed to both the Commissioner and the DDP to provide them with a copy of the findings. 

"That will never be a consideration," the Commissioner said Wednesday, when asked about Mr. Rouphine's request.

"It's never done.  It's an active investigation."

Police have been tight-lipped about reports that Douglas was shot and killed by a police officer. 

WINN FM has received persistent reports that in the early hours of the morning on March 27th, 34-year old Douglas was shot while fleeing the scene after smashing the windows and windscreen of a vehicle parked on Victoria Road. 

Mid-morning on the 27th, police responded to a report of his body lying along Central Market Street in the vicinity of Jenkins Funeral Home.  They later said that an autopsy had revealed that he had died from gunshot wounds, but they have neither confirmed nor denied that he may have been shot by police.
