Cops dismiss criminal connection


Share post:

THERE IS NO evidence to suggest any criminal involvement in the death of Kirk Brennan-Edwards, who fell to his death from one of the floors of City Centre car park, Bridgetown, just before 10 a.m. last Friday
A senior police investigator involved in the case made this disclosure yesterday, dismissing suggestions circulating on BlackBerry Messenger that 40-year-old Brennan-Edwards was beaten up and pushed.
The investigator, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there were no signs that Brennan-Edwards, of 2nd Avenue West Terrace, St James, was beaten.
A bag, which was left behind on the fifth floor, led police to his identity.
The message circulated on BlackBerry Messenger about the death said: “This is a message to all Bajan for ur all information, Kirk Edwards of 2nd Ave West Terrace & formerly of #272 Husband Gardens & Jackson did not commit suicide. He was beaten & push over City Centre car park . . . . He was never a talker & he did not deserve that.”
The police source said investigations were continuing. Investigators were in the process of examining footage from closed-circuit cameras, the source reported.
Efforts to speak to Brennan-Edwards’ mother proved futile again yesterday.
A woman who was at the house with her said she was in “no condition to speak”.
The few neighbours at home when a SUNDAY SUN team passed through had little to say about him.
One neighbour, who did not want to be identified, said the former worker at a security firm was “very polite” and “helpful”. She said she too was saddened by his death, and would respect his mother’s wishes not to speak to the Press.
She did say it was just Brennan-Edwards and his mother living at the house and there were “issues”, however.
Another neighbour said he would only know the man was passing when the dog barked.
Noting that the deceased did not mix or talk with anyone, he said he only had one encounter with him and it was about fixing a car.
