Family still in dark over gravedigger’s death

THE FAMILY OF gravedigger Stephen Cadogan laid him to rest in Westbury Cemetery yesterday, but they are not resting easy at the way their loved one was taken from them.

As scores of mourners sang When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder, Cadogan, who worked as a soil technician at the graveyard, was buried a stone’s throw away from where he was found with stab wounds early Sunday morning, October 13. His was among the 40 murders so far for the year.

His brother Wayne Yarde said he was still struggling to come to grips with the situation.

“I was working on my son’s vehicle when I got the news and I had to stop. I couldn’t work no more,” he told the Weekend Nation.

“Right now, the family isn’t doing too well, because he was one of the pillar stones, and he was my favourite out of all of my siblings, so we are just trying to hold on.”

He added since the killing, they had not received any new information from the police, other than investigations were continuing.
