This December 28th will be the sixth anniversary of the assassination of retired Barbados Immigration Chief and former Assistant Superintendent of Police Kenrick Hutson. The case is as ‘cold’ as they come with not a squeak from the police or newspapers since Hutson was shot down in front of his family.
We at BFP try not to forget even if our leaders do.
Original story first published June 29, 2008…
Retired Barbados Immigration Chief and former Assistant Superintendent of Police Kenrick Hutson was gunned down in front of his home on Friday December 28, 2007 while his wife and daughter were inside.
That is six months without an arrest and without a further mention of Mr. Hutson in the Barbados news media.
It is as if he never existed at all.
One would have thought that the Royal Barbados Police Force would have moved Heaven and Earth and never rested until those who murdered a colleague were captured or dead. Perhaps there is some large scale task force working diligently but quietly to hunt down Mr. Hutson’s murderers? Perhaps there has been further interest in the Barbados media with many stories – and we at BFP missed them?
Or perhaps, it is as if Kenrick Hutson never existed at all.
There are strange things that happen on this island sometimes – made stranger still by the silence of the “professional” news media.
