A Nation story indicates that the break in the case came when the victim’s brother chased down the male suspect and held him for police. Patrina is believed to have been killed by a blow to the head shortly after leaving her boyfriend’s home last week. Her body was kept in the boot of a motor-car until it was dumped last Saturday in the cane field where she was eventually found. The Nation: Tip did it

Various news media in Barbados reporting that the police were taken to the body by the suspect or suspects. Nation News reports that Patrina Lord’s twin sister is being questioned, along with the sister’s boyfriend or husband. There was a dispute over a motor-car.
Another report indicates that Patrina had been beaten.
It is said that murder is often a family affair. The way it looks at the moment, that might be true in this case.
Our original story first published November 7, 2011…
Sad sad news this evening for the family of missing 31 year old woman Patrina Lord. Her partially decomposed body was found in a field in Content, St. Thomas.
Police have one man under arrest, or as we say “assisting in the investigation”.
Lord went missing last Wednesday. A good guess would be a domestic dispute with the man killer leading the police to the scene – but a guess is all it would be.
More information should be coming out in the morning.
The Nation has the story so far: Body found
