Bowen and Bowen employee is bashed to the head and killed

Moses Coc

There was a murder in San Pedro over the weekend, allegedly the result of an altercation in town. According to the Police report, Bowen and Bowen employee thirty-one year old Moses Coc was with a friend on Swan Street when they were attacked by another man. That man allegedly hit Coc repeatedly to the head with a piece of stick until Coc fell to the ground unconscious. He was rushed to the San Pedro Polyclinic, which is where Police found him, but he had succumbed to his injuries. Coc had no relatives on the island, but News Five caught up with his brother at the K.H.M.H. as they waited for the results of the post-mortem examination.

“I got alerted twelve midnight the Saturday night and when I approached him already in the clinic on San Pedro, he was already wrapped up and in a bag. So as far as what happened, where, who did it, I don’t have the story at all. I would love to find a history at least, but right now I don’t have anything.”

“What are the police saying? Have you approached them to get some answers?”

“I had to transport the body yesterday. Nobody has an idea of what happened, not even them. They are puzzled. I think they have somebody detained, but I don’t know if we have the people that we should need, so to speak. As far as what I could say, just my imagination, that killed him was the big hit in the head. I couldn’t tell anything, visualising it at twelve midnight on Saturday, but when I came in yesterday, they reopened the bag and they flipped him and I could see a hole directly in the back of the head and he was bleeding. So people were concerned and questioned about what’s that blood and it was a hit from behind. A big hit with an object—a big metal bar or maybe a big piece of wood.”


Police have detained a twenty-six year old construction worker from San Pedro. They have recorded a caution statement from him and the file has been sent to the Office of the D.P.P. for further instructions.
