Time Of Death Was AFTER Rescue Called Off
A new blog called Truth In Barbados is demanding a full inquest into the deaths of the Codrington family. The blog is obviously run by family members of Donavere Codrington, who perished with most of his family after their rented apartment collapsed into a known cave in the early hours of Sunday, August 26, 2007.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all the remaining family and friends of the Codringtons. Frankly, we had been reluctant to report on the story that many folks believe that at least some of the trapped family died two days after officials announced that the “rescue” was now a “recovery”. This is based upon the Coroner’s certificate of death and the fact that Donavere was heard by several witnesses calling for help in the hours following the initial collapse.
Barbados Free Press and many others continue to demand a full and wide-ranging inquest into this tragedy to ensure that it never happens again.
Now that the story is having some exposure due to the Codrington family itself, Barbados Free Press will link to Truth In Barbados blog and report the details as painful as they may be.
Once again, our hearts and our prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims.
