Body identified as Rahim Ward


Share post:

A mother’s worst fear was realised today.

Barbara Dorant-Layne broke down after identifying the body taken from a shallow grave at Walkers, St Andrew, this afternoon as that of her son Rahim Ward.

The 22-year-old of Cottage Grove, St George, had been missing for a week, and police and Barbados Defence Force soldiers did the third search for him this morning in the rugged terrain near the St Andrew Parish Church.

The body was discovered around 6 a.m. in a disturbed area, and just before 4 p.m., Dorant-Layne and other members of the family were allowed to view it. She was heard saying: “them killed my son; them killed Rahim”.

His grandmother Virgene Ward, one of the last people to see him alive, and other family members, were also at the scene. (PR/SAT)
