Post mortem for British national

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) is awaiting a response from the British High Commission for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean on whether a post mortem examination should be conducted here on the body of Virgin Atlantic cabin crew member Quinton Garrathy.

Garrathy, a British national, was struck by a motor vehicle while crossing the road after disembarking from a bus at the Rodney Bay Marina on Sunday, August 3.

Police Press Officer Aniel Innocent told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) this is the normal protocol that must be followed. She said once permission is granted, plans will be made thereafter.

Garrathy was hit by a black Hyundai SUV, registration number PG657, driven by Sebastien King of Gros Islet, son of pathologist Dr. Stephen King, with two other male occupants on board.

  1. Truthful it is clear that u are not a driver cause that bs u just wrote about telling grown people how to cross the street . Do u think that any driver can see u if u stand in front of a bus and he is approaching that said bus from the rear ,and u blame the driver ,too many a time I've seen people almost knock down because they step out from the front of a bus . Hope u didn't teach that to your kids cause duh it's wrong u come out from the back where on coming traffic can see u and U CAN SEE THEM

  2. some people on here really need to have a bit more respect, i am outraged that people can be so heartless. Put yourself in the shoes of the relations that have to deal with this unfortunate instance. Karma will bite you on the backside one day.

  3. Speed limits exist for a reason. If he was exceeding the speed limit, even if nothing else happened, it is a crime. It doesn't matter if the pedestrian was drunk, high, suicidal or anything else. People need to learn that you do not speed. It's these kind of basic principles that Caribbean people are unable to follow and that separate them from the rest of the civilised world. Please educate yourselves. You come across like illiterate buffoons and this is why the rest of the world have such a poor impression of us.

  4. I hope the body is still in tip top shape for a postmortem. I heard Dr King himself said a few months ago the refrigerators are horror story the morgue is unsuitable to hold bodies. Hope they had him in a special cooler if not they will not be able to pin point what really kill him.

  5. I think it would be conflict of interest for the father of the driver to carry out the autopsy on the body killed by his son.

  6. P.S I bet that when they check the contents of this guys stomach and blood stream, it would prove that he was either intoxicated o alcohol or some other intoxicant and was as much a contributor to his death as the driver.

  7. Why does a vehicular accident always have to become a diplomatic spectacle? does the british government think that we are either not sufficiently competent or in some way have malicious intent toward their nationals. I f not then let us do our jobs

  8. The thing I don't get is why the lives of foreigners somehow have more value than our locals. When a a local dies in an accident or even by murder, he or she is more often than not a mere statistic, YET WHEN A FORIEGNER DIES IT GETS SO MUCH MEDIA ATTE...See More

  15. Ok Dr. Rambally used to perform post mortems too. I'm sure if he is approached he would do it.

  16. What is the big deal. Accident do happen
    No one dies before their time. This is how the guy had to leave the land and go to the promise one.

    guys be serious. It just on fortunate that is how he had to leave.

    • What is the big deal? Really? Are you for real? I know you would be singing a different song if it were your mother, brother, father, sister, or child.

  17. They need a PM to conclude whether the driver was exceeding the legal speed limit or not. If he was, it probably won't matter if the pedestrian was intoxicated, unless they can prove that he would have been killed by a car travelling within the speed limit. He doesn't look like a small guy and according to reports, he died at the scene. That suggests that the car was travelling faster than the speed limit.

    What I will say is that although Dr King may be wealthy, this guy didn't look poor and he is British. He also works for Virgin who are by all accounts a good company to work for. If there is a crime here, I don't think it will be covered up as easily as it would a local.

    seem to be a small guy

  18. st.lucia has 2 other pathologist, there is one at St.Judes, and Dr. Wayne Felicien, officers what is problem obviously Dr. King cannot perform the post mortem. To the idiots in the ministry of health it is pointless you'll ask Doctors to go specialize in areas that are needed and when they return, they are left to linger like dogs in the streets... but the government will hire useless consultants and claim its necessary....smfh we are going............oh i forget we are there already , more bitter days.......

    • What are you really trying to say? Because I just don't understand. Since you seem to be so full of ideas, maybe the government should give you a consultancy to advise the Ministry of Health

  19. It's high time bus drivers get involved in how pedestrians cross the road. He should at least tell the pedestrian to stand in front his vehicle while he check and tells the pedestrian how to cross. Secondly a driver ought to know that once u c a bus he has to expect a pedestrian. He was suppose to cutdown on his speed.

    The police need to charge him for careless driving

    • Seriously???? Why should bus drivers advise people how to cross, when so many drivers are so irresponsible? All citizens should take responsibility for their safety - rule for crossing - look up, look down, look up again, if it is safe to cross then do so!

  20. Really jackasses? The issue is simply where the postmortem would be conducted! Not who conducts it!!! Is there a part of the story I missed? Cause it would seem that the postmortem would reveal that the guy was killed first and then placed on the road and ran over to cover up his murder! Damn it st lucians.... we make issues about the most irrelevant details!
