Williamson drowned, says Dr

| 04/11/2013

(CNS): The forensic pathologist who conducted the postmortem on the body of Patrick Williamson on Saturday found that the 35-year-old Jamaican national drowned. Following that finding, police said that enquiries into the man's death continue. The RCIPS has been treating Williamson's death as a murder enquiry but officers have not yet stated if the results of the doctor's assessment have changed that position and whether or not the police still believe that he was the victim of foul play. Williamson was reported missing to the police on Sunday 27 October and his body was found at around 7am the following morning in a pond behind his home in Courts Road. He was last seen alive in the early hours of Saturday morning when he dropped off friends in the same area after a night out at several George Town bars.

Williamson was understood to have been involved in an argument with a man outside Nectar Bar, one of the bars that Williamson and his friends visited during Friday night-Saturday morning.

Police urge anyone who saw Williamson or the silver Toyota Corolla, registration 145 228, that he was driving during Friday night or Saturday to come forward. Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Joseph Wright, also noted that the car has damage to the rear near-side.

Information can be passed to George Town police station 949-4222, the RCIPS tip line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).

    'Near Side' = side of a vehicle nearest the kerb

    the near side of a car is the side that faces the curb or off road , so figure from there it depends what county you are in.

    What the hell is a rear near side?

      The side of the car nearer to the kerb or pavement is the near side.  The side nearer to the centre of the road is the far side.  Rear means back (behind the driver – the end where the boot usually is).

      Does that help?

      The aft end of the side you’re looking at, maybe?

      Probably the rear driver's side

      It means back of the driver side.

      Sigh.  The side that is at the rear and nearest the pavement.  As opposed to the front offside!
