While the police continue the investigation into the death of Bruce Greenaway, whose lifeless body was found at Indian Creek last month, his family will finally be able to lay him to rest.
According to a close relative of the deceased, the funeral will be held on Thursday June 4 at Straffie’s Funeral Home.
Greenaway’s body was found on April 13 on the shoreline of Indian Creek.
The father-of-two was apparently seen in the presence of Defence Force soldiers shortly before he went missing four days earlier.
Autopsy results have reportedly revealed that Greenaway died from strangulation.
The Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force previously conducted an internal investigation into the matter and has forwarded the findings to police, who are yet to disclose the information.
Police are urging the public to be patient, saying investigations are at an advanced stage and several key people of interest have been interviewed.
But former Commissioner of Police Wendel Robinson is calling for a full inquest to determine the circumstances leading to the Falmouth man’s tragic death.
The incident has shocked the nation with many residents taking to social media to express their outrage, accompanied by the hashtags “#JusticeforBruce” and “Sayhisname”.
Greenaway’s MP Chet Greene has also publicly called for “absolutely no delays” in bringing the perpetrators to justice.
