FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST REVISES SHAQUILLE PEMBERTON’S CAUSE OF DEATH
Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 06, 2018 (RSCNPF): The Police issued a press release on February 03, 2018 which relied on the report provided by the Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Valery Alexandrov regarding the death of Shaquille Pemberton. His initial report indicated that Mr. Pemberton’s death was as a result of natural causes.
However, since undertaking further laboratory tests in Trinidad, Dr. Alexandrov has now revised his opinion and ruled that the method of death is undetermined. While Mr. Pemberton’s death was due, in part, to acute pulmonary failure due to haemorrhagic viral myocarditis and pneumonia, the forensic pathologist is of the view that there are other inconsistencies surrounding the manner (mode) of death that merit further investigation.
On this basis the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force are continuing investigations and will be seeking the support of the public to assist with their enquiries.
