Police drain pond where body was found

| 31/10/2013

(CNS): Specialist officers spent a good deal of Wednesday draining the pond off Courts Road as the investigation into what is suspected to be the murder of Patrick Leonard Williamson, a.k.a. ‘Carlos’ continued. The RCIPS have still not given any further details on how they suspect the 35 year old Jamaican national died as officials continue to wait for the results of a post-mortem which is expected to take place on Saturday but the police are treating the case as a murder enquiry. Williamson was last seen alive in the early hours of Saturday26 October and was reported missing on Sunday afternoon. His body was discovered in the pond close to his George Town home at around 7am Monday morning.

Officers are trawling through hours of CCTV footage from various locations as they attempt to piece together a picture of the last few hours of Williamsons’ life and determine what happened to him.

Police have appealed for anyone who saw him or his car on Friday night Saturday morning to come forward Williamson was last seen alive at around 3:30 on Saturday morning by his friends in the vicinity of Eastern Avenue and Courts Road, where he had dropped people off after a night out.  This was close to where Williamson who was driving a silver Toyota Corolla 145 228 lived. Prior to dropping his friends home they had all been to a number of George Town bars, including Meringue Town, Bananas and Nectar.

Officers believe that Williamson was involved in an altercation outside Nectar bar with another man and are pursuing that line of enquiry.

Anyone with information that can hel with the investigation is asked to call George Town police station 949-4222, the RCIPS tip line 949-7777 or the anonymous tip line Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).

    Why are public comments allowed here, in a murder case, when other more mundane cases dont allow commentary?

    CNS: Because no one has been arrested or charged.

      08.54 if you have nothing sensible or relevant to write, then go back and sit under your tree, take your beer, have a nice sleep and never go near a computer again. Obviously you have difficutly restraining yourself to appropriate comments in what is a very serious and sad matter.

      A man has lost his life and you don't seem to care to solve the crime, only that they save the wildlife from the pond. Such compassion you have.

      How disrespectful and cold-hearted! How would you feel if someone said that in relation to your loved one? RUDE.

      God Forbid that this happens to you, I will recommend that they do not drain the pond to find out what happened to you.
