Post Mortem Report Shows St James Cooking Gas Dealer Died by  Hanging

St. James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Post Mortem Report: The Freeport police have indicated that a Postmortem examination carried out on the body of a popular St James Cooking Gas dealer, Everton Hinds, on Monday, November 6, revealed that the victim died by hanging.

According to investigators, following his death, several close family members of the 57-year-old cooking gas dealer refuted the police report that he actually attempted to murder his own wife by stabbing her over a dozen times at their family home in Tangle River, St James and then took his own life by hanging himself.

According to the police reports, sometime after 12:30 am on   Tuesday, October 17,  Everton Hinds, otherwise called Cookie or Dick, Shell Gas Operator of Tangle River District in St James, attacked his  58-year-old wife and used a knife to inflict over a dozen stab wounds to her body.

Thinking that his wife was dead, Hinds reportedly telephoned a close relative at about 2:30, and informed her that something had happened at the family house.

The Spring Mount police were informed, and a team from the station drove to the house, where they discovered the main bedroom to the house splattered in blood, and Mrs. Hinds barely alive, suffering from multiple stab wounds.

A further search of the property led to the discovery of Hinds’  body, which was seen hanging from a length of rope suspended from the branch of a breadfruit tree.

They were both transported to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where Hinds was pronounced dead and his wife admitted to intensive care.

Following the report, the police came under fire from family members  who claimed that he was actually murdered in a plot and afterwards hanged
on the tree.

The police say they are now sticking to the findings of their investigations, that Hinds actually attempted to murder his wife, and believing that she was dead, went and hanged himself.

Post Mortem Report: Following the Post Mortem examination, the case is now closed as suicide and attempted murder.
