Police appeal for witnesses in killing

Police have released an image of the car used by Patrick Leonard Williamson prior to his death Saturday in the hope of jogging the memory of potential witnesses. 

Mr. Williamson, 35, was last seen at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday near Eastern Avenue and Courts Road, driving a silver Toyota Corolla, license number 145 228. His body was found on Monday morning in a pond on Spruce Lane, near his Courts Road home.   

According to investigators, he had accompanied friends on Friday night to a series of bars and clubs, including Meringue Town, Bananas, and the Nectar Lounge at Seven Mile Shops. 

Police on Tuesday morning said Mr. Williamson’s death may have resulted from “an altercation” with another man at Nectar in the early hours of Saturday morning. Investigators had not established the cause of death, awaiting formal notification by a forensic pathologist, but declared the death “suspicious.” 

Mr. Williamson’s body was found in the pond at 7 a.m. Monday by the landowner after a Sunday-afternoon missing-persons report filed by his fiancée, following a 36-hour absence.

Police said no formal identification had been made, but confirmed the identity of the Jamaican national, also known as “Carlos.” Family members, who reside off island, had been informed, detectives said, and a Family Liaison Officer appointed. 

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Joseph Wright appealed for anyone who saw Mr. Williamson or his car on Friday evening into Saturday morning or witnessed anything at Seven Mile Shops’ Nectar lounge to come forward.  


Information can be passed to George Town police station 949-4222, the RCIPS tip line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).
