Autopsy: Drowning was cause of man’s death

A
post-mortem examination conducted on the body of a man found dead off Courts
Road last month has revealed drowning as the cause of death. 

“There were no significant injuries [to Patrick Leonard Williamson],” according to an RCIPS spokesperson, responding to questions about whether Mr. Williamson had been shot or stabbed, as had been rumored last month. 

Royal
Cayman Islands Police Service officers provided no further details regarding
their investigation into Mr. Williamson’s demise Monday. 

The
Jamaican national was last seen at 3:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 near Eastern
Avenue and Courts Road driving a silver Toyota Corolla. 

His
body wasn’t found until Monday, Oct. 28 in a pond on Spruce Lane, located in
the back of the Courts Road home he shared with his fiancée. 

Investigators
believe Mr. Williamson was out with friends the previous Friday night, Oct. 25
and attended several bars. 

Police
said Mr. Williamson’s death may have resulted from “an altercation” with
another man at Nectar nightclub early that Saturday morning.  Investigators said Mr. Williamson’s
death appeared suspicious, but did not immediately state a cause of death.
