9 Days Later and Still No Autopsy on the Body of George Murphy

George Murphy

The family of George Murphy is up in arms tonight because nine days after he was killed, they still have not been able to lay the remains of their loved one to rest. On September twenty-ninth, the twenty-one-year-old fisherman was executed near the main pier in Placencia. Preparations were made to bury Murphy, but the family has been unable to because of continuous delays in carrying out the autopsy. Murphy’s body is at the Southern Regional Hospital since the incident and the family cannot find closure. Earlier today, News Five spoke with Murphy’s brother, Orie Burgess.

“The doctor from the Boom side weh supposed to do the body was complaining about the blade weh dehn cut the body with neva sharp and he mi need to order one and a brush to clean the body. So two days after, three days after, still yet nobody talk to we or explain to we why we can’t go do my bredda body. We checked further more and I tell the corporal what di happen and the corporal say everything alright and they are trying to proceed but it is the doctor that is holding up things. So I noh really know weh di happen right now with my bredda. All we want to do is try rest the man body. We di try understand more or less when we could get our bredda body for ourselves so that we can bury the man peacefully. It has already been a week. My bredda dead from the thirtieth of September. And noh fi talk on anybody else death, but other dead bodies, this man di proceed with other bodies and tell we how he got two bodies, three bodies, four bodies before my lee bredda.
