Evidence recovered last week during the
search for a missing nurse in the Pedro St. James Castle area has not been of
any assistance to that investigation, Royal Cayman Islands Police said
Police initially said a substance
resembling blood was found on some rocks near the seaside in the Pedro area
some distance from where Kerran Baker’s car was found on 1 August.
“We did receive the analysis of the stains
we collected….and it was proven that it is not blood content,” RCIPS Superintendent
Marlon Bodden said.
Ms Baker disappeared sometime after 7pm on
Saturday, 30 July and has not been heard from since, according to police. A
friend of Kerran’s found bags of groceries and a handbag that had been left on
the counter of her Bodden Town home the evening of 31 July, leading police to
start an investigation into the 25-year-old Jamaican woman’s whereabouts.
Another possible key piece of evidence,
papers found in the area near Kerran’s Honda on Sunday evening, has been
recovered by police and is being processed, Mr. Bodden said.
Superintendent Bodden said police were now
working on tracing Blackberry instant messages that went back and forth between
Kerran’s phone and others in the day or so leading up to her
“There are many individuals in the Cayman
Islands’ community and possibly in Jamaica that can provide us with relevant
information to at least try to find out what has happened with Kerran,
especially on Saturday (30 July),” Mr. Bodden said.
Police have little clue as to what happened
to the missing woman after she was spotted by a CCTV camera leaving the Fosters
airport grocery store that Saturday night. Reports of sightings later in the
evening have so far proven inconclusive.
RCIPS Chief Superintendent John Jones said
tracing BBM instant messages is not as easy as tracing a phone call or text
message, and indicated this has caused investigators some problems in the
“It’s not just a simple flick of the switch
and we can get all the information that we need,” Mr. Jones said. “Getting any
detail of BBM messages is particularly problematic.”
